Speaking on the incident afterwards, the 63-year-old played down the incident.
‘I told him not to forget to offer me his hand when he was substituted. I think he forgot.’ he said.
It would prove to be an excellent substitution, Rodrygo’s replacement, Dani Ceballos would go on to assist and grab the winning goal in an impressive half-hour performance.
