Iniesta offended by Pepe claims

Andres Iniesta says Real Madrid’s Pepe offended Barcelona players by accusing them of play-acting in Sunday’s 2-2 draw.

The Portugal international labelled Iniesta and his team-mates ‘theatrical’ after the attacking midfielder called for a penalty in the high-profile Clasico, and the Spaniard is not amused with Pepe’s comments.

“Of course I am affected by what he said,” Iniesta told Onda Cero. “Every person is entitled to have an opinion and say that a certain action was a penalty.

“However, it cannot go any further than that. There are boundaries.

“If a player speaks about you and your team-mates like this, you feel offended.

“I’m not theatrical in any way, and neither are the other guys. These comments hurt because they are a personal attack.”

Barcelona sit first in La Liga, holding an eight-point lead over Real Madrid.
