Barca consider complaint to UEFA over Mourinho rant

12:26 pm on 30 April 2011

Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho could get into trouble for his comments about Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola and the match referee from Thursday's Champions League semi-final at the Bernabeu.

Lionel Messi scored twice after Real had midfielder Pepe sent off in the 62nd minute, giving the Catalans a 2-0 first-leg lead ahead of next Tuesday's return at the Nou Camp.

Mourinho was sent to the stands for protesting the red card decision.

In the post-match press conference, Mourinho severely criticised the referee and insinuated that UEFA treated Barca favourably.

Barcelona are considering making a complaint to UEFA.
