FC Barcelona's head coach Tito Vilanova attends a press conference at Camp Nou in Barcelona, northeastern Spain, 06 October 2012. Barcelona will face Real Madrid in the Spanish Primera Division soccer match on October 07, traditionally known as the Clasico. Pix: EPAMADRID: Barcelona manager Tito Vilanova mocked Real Madrid over their refereeing complaints after Sunday's El Clasico 2-2 draw at Nou Camp.
Real's controversial defender Pepe accused Barca midfielder Andres Iniesta of "doing theatre" in a bid to win a second half penalty and manager Jose Mourinho - who infamously poked a finger into the eye of Vilanova on the touchline last season when he was Josep 'Pep' Guardiola's assistant - claimed the referee made "one mistake at a certain moment".
"He (Mourinho) said he does not want to discuss referees, yet he has," Vilanova said of his opposite number. "If you talk about referees you should talk about all actions, not a few in particular."
On Pepe's claims of simulation against Iniesta, Vilanova quipped: "We should make a video of all his fouls and actions."
Pepe gave Iniesta both barrels in the immediate aftermath and also blasted the player's antics in the mixed zone after the game.
"People can see on TV that Iniesta did it himself. There was no penalty. Also, the way he fell ... c'mon, rolling over and over. It's sad," rapped Pepe.
