Barcelona players still angry with Espanyol captain Victor Sanchez

Barcelona players are upset with Espanyol captain Victor Sanchez after Sunday's bitter derby draw.

Sport says Espanyol striker Sergio Garcia has managed to patch up differences with Barca players upset over his clash Samuel Umtiti.

However, there remains lingering resentment against Victor.

It's suggested the midfielder's targeting of Barca star Lionel Messi angered many inside the away dressing room. Victor fouled Messi in their first challenge and then told the Argentine to stop complaining to the referee.

His actions upset the Barca camp and while Sergio has been forgiven, there's still some resentment towards Victor for his attitude.
