Suarez: Ref allowed timewasting

Barcelona forward Luis Suarez reportedly accused referee David Fernandez Borbalan of “allowing Valencia to waste time” in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat.

Suarez was booked in the 39th minute for an act of dissent to Fernandez Borbalan, and Mundo Deportivo claims the Uruguayan “emerged as Barca’s spokesman at Camp Nou” after he pulled the ref up on perceived acts from Valencia players to deliberately draw the game out.

“They [the Valencia players] are wasting time for as long as they wish, and you’re allowing them,” he is understood to have said before being booked.

The newspaper adds Andre Gomes was shown a yellow card for “moving the ball from where a free kick was signalled, with the intention of wasting time”.
