Leganes goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar blasts ‘ugly’ Barcelona attitude

Leganes goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar has blasted the ‘ugly’ attitude of Barcelona players following Wednesday night’s shock victory.

Goals from Nabil El Zhar and Oscar Rodriguez secured a stunning comeback win for Lega, with 34-year-old Cuellar pulling off a string of fine saves to secure victory.

“We are an unassuming side but we would have preferred a different reaction from Barcelona,” Cuellar told Cadena Ser.

“If you are a team who are used to winning and you do not, you should congratulate the other team but Barcelona did not do that to us.

“None of their players came over after the game, that it not the right way of doing things, it is ugly and should not happen.

“I was very pleased with my performance and the saves I made, but the important thing is always the team and I am just glad I could play my part.

“We did not start well and I was disappointed for my own par in their goal but we did well to take advantage of them switching off.

“When we entered the closing stages of the game, we had faith and belief in ourselves even though they are one of the best teams in the world.”
