Those frustrations didn’t stop once the team headed back to the dressing room, and according to AS, the 34-year-old confronted Fati and aired his grievances to his team-mate.
The report details that the Polish forward was ‘good mannered’ during his complaints, but pointed out to the young Spaniard that this wasn’t the first time it had happened.

Fati then defended himself by claiming that he hadn’t seen Lewandowski during the move, prompting him to try and get on the end of the cross.
Lewandowski has been a huge success for the Catalans, scoring 25 goals in 30 games since his move from Bayern Munich in the summer.
His goals have contributed to Barcelona’s healthy lead at the top of LaLiga, where the lead rivals Real Madrid by eight points with 16 games to go before the end of the campaign.

‘We fought until the last minute but unfortunately it wasn’t enough tonight.’ Lewandowski said.
‘We are disappointed, but we still have trophies to win this season. Thank you for your support.’
