Berizzo: No pen disrespect

Eduardo Berizzo didn’t have a problem with Lionel Messi’s penalty pass to Luis Suarez as his Celta Vigo side lost heavily at Barcelona.

Messi laid the ball off to Suarez rather than shoot from 12 yards as Barca won 6-1 and after the match, Berizzo was asked if he felt the Catalans were mocking his side.

“It was taken in different way, that’s it. It’s not disrespectful,” he replied, AS reports.

“Their forwards are always very respectful to the opponent. They’re voracious. They can each score the goals they can or want to.

“The penalty is within the law. I’m more hurt by the goals than how they’re scored.

“The talent the Barca players have imposed itself on our organisation in the second half.”
