Barreto accussed of spitting on Madhab!

A frustrated East Bengal side and East Bengal back Madhab Das who was given the job of man marking Barreto in the Derby match, had failed miserably and so much so that he had to be replaced by Chandan Das in the second half is now out an accusing spree. Madhab even managed to pick up a yellow card when he pounced on the refree after he had awarded Bagan a 36th minute penalty, when he brought down Barreto inside the penalty box. Madhab had fouled Barreto countless number of times and after the defeat, East Bengal club officials and players instead of analysing there own short comings are openly accusing others. First they accussed the refree of biased play, then Anajan Mitra for creating pressure on the Refree Association and IFA. Now its time for Barreto.
Madhab Das is now accusing Barreto to have spitted on him during the match.
Barreto has denied such allegation as baseless and dubbed it as just another excuse after being defeated. Barreto today held a press meeting and said that, "If he(Madhab) has any complaint against me, why isn't he writing it on a piece of paper and sending it to the IFA. I'd be more than happy to answer." He continued, "He(Madhab) has also scratched me here(on his back) so am I going around complaing that, oh! look, he has scratched me! Its all a part of the game. Yes we did exchange a few words, but as i said, its all part of the game."
On being asked about the incident, Satyajit, the assitant coach remarked, "Its all baseless, just excuses. I have been around here for a lot of years, i know what goes behind all these allegations." He added, "Even we can now say that he spitted on someone else, what's the point? who's goining to see it? why didn't he bring that to the refree's attention then."
