Barcelona boss, Ronald Koeman has slammed Getafe's Allan Nyon for saying 'ugly things' during his team's shock 1-0 defeat on Saturday.

Jaime Mata scored a second-half penalty to condemn Koeman's side to their first LaLiga defeat of the season, and the Barca boss was seen angrily exchanging words with his opposite number, Jose Bordalas.

Speaking after the game, Koeman revealed the conversation was about the words said to him by Getafe full-back, Nyom.

"I told him [Getafe coach Jose Bordalas] that his number 12 [Nyom] had shown me a lack of respect, he had said two or three very ugly things to me which I won't repeat. He insulted me," Koeman said post-game.

"I told Bordalas that he needs to speak to his player, because we cannot tolerate that type of behaviour in modern football."

Getafe boss Bordolas responded to Koeman's comments, saying, "I'm here to talk about football, not about controversy. I haven't spoken to the boy, I will tomorrow, but I doubt that Nyom would do that, I know him well.

"He's very competitive, but he's a very respectful person. I don't allow bad behaviour among my players but I doubt that Nyom insulted him."

This was Koeman's first Barcelona defeat and leaves the LaLiga side ninth on the table, with seven points from the opening four games.
