Barcelona suffered defeat to Inter Milan in the Champions League but Xavi Hernandez believes they were robbed and needs explanation from the referee.

Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has demand explanation from the referee following their 1-0 defeat to Inter Milan last night.

The Camp Nou side lost their third group stage match to Inter Milan in a game Xavi claims there was injustice.

VAR decisions caused controversies at San Siro, Pedri appeared to have equalised on 67 minutes after Cameroon keeper Andre Onana came through a crowd of players and palmed a cross straight to him, allowing the 19-year-old to finish.

However, Fati had his hand raised and the ball was pushed into his fingers at point-blank range as he put Onana under pressure. The goal was ruled out via VAR, and Barcelona manager Xavi was booked for complaining to the referee.

“The referee should be out here explaining why he makes these decisions, if he made mistakes or not. That would humanise them a lot more,” said Xavi.

“Today I’m really unhappy. I feel there is real injustice.”

“I’m pissed off about the situation. I’m outraged. We don’t understand anything. If there is a hand from Ansu and he scores another goal, it’s a goal, and they cancel it. And the other thing is not understood. It’s an injustice, the referees should speak and explain themselves because we don’t understand anything I said it yesterday.

“We feel that it has been a great injustice. It is the referee who should come out and speak. And he leaves and nothing happens. We don’t understand it. But we have entered late and we have lacked dynamism.

“We have had chances, but we haven’t materialized them. We knew of his danger with shots from outside the box. We have three finals left and we’re in an uncomfortable situation. We have to compete better”.
