Leganes goalkeeper Ivan Cuellar has criticised Barcelona players for being bad losers after they lost to the bottom-placed side having gone a goal up in the game.
Barcelona suffered their first loss of the season in shocking fashion as Leganesd landed their first 3 points of the season and moved out of the relegation places.
Speaking after the game in a chat with Cadena Ser radio, the 34-year-old said:
“We are a humble side. but I like it when people who are used to winning lose, salute the other team and say congratulations, something Barcelona did not do to any of our players”

“None of the Barcelona players came after the game to speak to us, and I think that is an ugly gesture. I don’t think anyone noticed, but I wanted to say this.”
It can be recalled that the goalie pulled off a double save from Coutinho and Rakitic to keep his side in contention for all 3 points and subsequently get his first career victory over Barcelona.
He added that he was contacted after the game by folks who heaped praises on him for his performance on the night.
“When I got to my locker and I picked up my mobile, it was so heated up — just like the Barca players were!” he said. “I had lots of WhatsApp messages.
“I probably will not see the replays of the saves I made because the most important thing was the work that the team did. One knows perfectly well when one does a good job and when he does badly.”
