The exchange happened after Antoine Griezmann netted for the Blaugrana, with the Granada bench taking exception to the decision and surrounding the officials on the sidelines.

Ronald Koeman

That prompted Koeman to wade in, which led to an angry exchange between him and the subbed Soldado.

The former Tottenham and Villarreal striker called Koeman a “clown” and a “moron” twice, it has been recorded.

The Catalan side won 5-3 to advance to the semi-finals.
