Barcelona manager Xavi was left livid after the decision to award his team a penalty during their defeat to Villarreal was overturned by VAR.

Xavi’s side suffered a 5-3 defeat in the LaLiga clash despite having led 3-2 going into the closing stages of the game. 

After the match Xavi revealed that he will be leaving Barcelona at the end of the season.

With the sides level at 3-3, Barcelona were looking to take the lead from the penalty spot after Villarreal’s Santi Comesana was deemed to have handled the ball in the area.

However, following a VAR check the decision was overturned, much to Xavi’s frustration.

Xavi then turned to a TV camera and made his feelings on the incident clear as he labelled the decision ‘a disgrace’. 

The reaction from Xavi evoked memories of Didier Drogba’s outburst following Chelsea’s Champions League exit against Barcelona in the semi-finals in 2009.

Drogba was angry with many decisions made by referee Tom Henning Ovrebo and shouted ‘It’s a disgrace’ into a TV camera.

The defeat to Villarreal leaves Barcelona in third place in LaLiga, ten points adrift of leaders Real Madrid.
