Barcelona consider Mourinho complaint

Barcelona are considering reporting Jose Mourinho to UEFA over the Real Madrid coach's incredible verbal tirade following Wednesday night's Champions League semi-final at the Bernabeu.

Mourinho was sent to the stands and Real defender Pepe was handed a straight red card during a fiery first leg, which Barcelona won 2-0 thanks to two late Lionel Messi goals.

Speaking after the match, Mourinho clearly disagreed with the decisions but he also decided to vent his thoughts on what he believes is a systematic favouring of Barcelona by UEFA. He said his rivals were the beneficiaries of constantly biased refereeing, naming a list of individual officials and citing specific examples down the years while claiming Barcelona's recent Champions League successes are tainted by "scandals".

Mourinho said he felt "disgusted" to be a part of football and "if I tell UEFA what I really think, my career would end now". He said Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola should feel "ashamed" and that "one day I would like Josep Guardiola to win this competition properly", refering to Barcelona's triumph in 2009 after the controversial semi-final against Chelsea.

Barcelona issued a statement on their website in response late on Wednesday night, quoting several of Mourinho's claims.

The statement read: "Barcelona's legal department will study the declarations made by Jose Mourinho to determine whether to refer them to UEFA. In the post match press conference, Jose Mourinho severely criticised the referee (Wolfgang) Stark and insinuated that UEFA treated Barcelona favourably.

"The Real Madrid coach said: 'Josep Guardiola is a fantastic football coach, but he has won one Champions League which would embarrass me after the scandal at Stamford Bridge and this year, if he wins it again, it will be after the scandal at the Bernabeu'.

"He further accused Barca, claiming: 'I don't know if it's the publicity of UNICEF (on shirts), I don't know if it's the friendship of (Spanish football federation president Angel Maria) Villar at UEFA, where he is vice-president, I don't know if it's because they are very nice, but they have got this power. The rest of us have no chance'.''

And on Thursday, the Catalans confirmed a board meeting will be held to decide on the next course of action.

A statement on Barca's official website read: "There will be an 'extraordinary' meeting of the board at 1700 [local time on Thursday] to discuss the action to be taken after the events of the Bernabeu. Later there will be a press conference at 1900.

"At the press conference after the game, Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho harshly criticised referee Wolfgang Stark and suggested Barcelona receive favourable treatment.

"The Legal Services of FC Barcelona are considering reporting the Real Madrid coach to the Disciplinary Commission of UEFA.''
