Beleaguered Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman gets into spat with Juventus bench during 3-0 defeat as he tells subs to ‘SHUT UP’ after they appealed for a red card to be given to defender Clement Lenglet
- Barcelona endured poor night the Nou Camp after being beaten by Juventus
- Italian champions cruised to a 3-0 win to pile more pressure on Ronald Koeman
- Dutch boss cut a frustrated figure at Nou Camp after getting involved in spat
- Koeman allegedly told the Juventus bench to ‘shut up’ after a handball claim
Koeman endured a frustrating night seeing his side outplayed by the Italian champions at the Nou Camp but he also found their stars on the bench just as much as a nuisance.
His side were already 2-0 down following a Cristiano Ronaldo penalty and a Weston McKennie effort in the first half.

The Portuguese veteran then proved just as deadly from the spot again in the 52nd minute after a Clement Lenglet handball.
It came after the Barcelona defender’s offence inside the box was spotted by VAR and with him already on a booking led to appeals from Juve stars on the bench for the French defender to be sent off.
According to Football Italia, Koeman responded to the claims by shouting at opponents in the opposite dugout to ‘shut up.’
However it did little to silence the Juventus substitutes who soon turned their attention to the Barca boss.

Paulo Dybala was among those laughing in response to Koeman’s outburst, which only appeared to annoy him further on a terrible night for the Spanish side.
Although Barca were already through following five straight wins, they only needed to avoid defeat to progress as group winners.
But after a meek surrender to Andrea Pirlo’s side, Barca will now be unseeded in the last-16 after finishing as group runners-up behind the Bianconeri.
The defeat will also place more pressure on Koeman who has endured a slow start at the club since taking over in the summer.
