Barca values? Granada coach Lucas Alcaraz blasts Rakitic taunts

Granada coach Lucas Alcaraz has blasted Barcelona after Sunday's bitter defeat.

Alcaraz said on Tuesday that Barcelona “should have apologised for a lack of respect" after the Catalans won 4-1 at Los Carmenes on Sunday.

He was referring to insults from Ivan Rakitic in the game aimed at Andreas Pereira.

“Players in the big teams in Spain can do whatever they like. Of course it was a lack of respect to the club and they should have rectified it," he said.

“If a player from a big team does it, it's because he's got a bit heated, but if a player from a small team does it, it's because he's shameless."
