Granada boss fumes at Rakitic, Barcelona over Pereira incident

Granada coach Lucas Alcaraz has hit out at Barcelona and Ivan Rakitic over their failure to apologise for the Croat's mid-game tirade at Andreas Pereira on Sunday.

Granada boss: Barcelona "should have put it right"

TV cameras captured Rakitic taunting the Granada player over the 19th-placed Andalusians' relegation worries, shouting: "You guys are going down!"

The midfielder, who scored the third in Barça's 4-1 win at Los Cármenes, was also seen calling the on-loan Manchester United man a "son of a b**ch".

Rakitic can be seen shouting "You guys are going down!" and calling Pereira a "son of a b**ch".

Speaking on Tuesday, Alcaraz railed against Barça and Rakitic when asked about the incident: "The players at the big clubs in Spain are able to do as they please.

"They've shown disrespect to this club, and they should have put it right."

Alcaraz alleges double standards in LaLiga

Alcaraz added: "If a player from a big club does it, it's put down to the heat of the moment; if a player from a smaller club does it, he's branded a disgrace."
