Real Valladolid president Carlos Suarez on pitch shocker: Right to punish us

Real Valladolid president Carlos Suarez says they'll accept their punishment for the state of the pitch in Barcelona's win on Saturday.

Holes appeared everywhere from the first few minutes, with players finding it hard to keep their footing in key moments or even control the ball at times.

Complaints from the players and the coaching staff were constant before, during and after the game and LFP chief Javier Tebas says disciplinary action will be taken.

"It seems right to me that the punish us, if there's a rule that allows that," Suarez told El Transistor. "It's clear that the pitch wasn't good enough."

Suarez added that he also "accepts Barça's complaints" after the Catalan club lodged an official complaint about the ripped up pitch.
