Goalkeeper Ondrej Kolar has revealed that Barcelona stars refused to shake and exchange shirts with their Slavia Prague opponents after their match.
The Spanish outfit were denied victory as their Champions League match ended in a goalless draw at Nou Camp on Tuesday night and Kolar was left disappointed with the behaviour of some players at full time.
Many of the Barcelona players angrily stormed off the pitch after the game except goal-stopper Marc-Andre ter Stegen who was one of the few that stayed behind to congratulate the visiting team.
‘He was waiting for me inside the tunnel,’ Kolar said after the match, as quoted by iDNES.cz. ‘He stopped me and said he hadn’t seen such a good goalkeeping performance for a long time and that it was a pleasure to watch me play well with my feet.
‘He waited for me after the match, which I take as the ultimate award. To hear such praise from such a good goalkeeper, I had goosebumps. It was an amazing experience, but some of the other players.
‘Messi and the others just left – some of them didn’t even shake our hands. It was sad. We were all looking forward to meeting these big players, we wanted to swap jerseys after the match, but they didn’t behave very well.’Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
