Tito Vilanova admits that he is not happy with some of the decisions that the referee made during Barcelona's win at Deportivo La Coruna.
Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova has admitted that he failed to understand some decisions made by the referee during his side's 5-4 victory over Deportivo La Coruna in La Liga.
Jose Paradas sent off midfielder Javier Mascherano and also awarded a controversial penalty to the hosts at the Riazor on Saturday.
"I was surprised at Cesc Fabregas's caution over celebrating a goal," said Vilanova. "You (journalists) have better images to judge his performance, though.
"The penalty broke our rhythm. Before that I had never seen our team play so well in the first 20 minutes.
"I introduced Xavi [after Mascherano's dismissal] because with 10 men, I wanted more control. He was fresh and could ensure that."
Barcelona remain in pole position in La Liga with 22 points from eight matches.
