Valencia director blasts referee

Valencia's sporting director Jesús García Pitarch was scathing in his criticism of referee Undiano Mallenco following Barcelona's 3-2 win at the Mestalla on Saturday.

Pitarch pointed to three controversial incidents which went the way of Valencia's opponents and, the director feels, affected the result of the game.

 “There were three clear incidents within half an hour: Messi's first goal with Suarez offside, the second yellow offence of Busquets and Rodrigo's [unawarded] penalty. Undiano has to take a look at himself. Spanish football can't have such a disgraceful referee.

“He'll will be embarrassed when he looks back at this game,” fumed Pitarch after the match.
