Jordi Alba: I have scars from Essien challenge

The Barcelona full-back has revealed that the Ghanaian's challenge on him left a mark, but accepts that referees have a hard time during matches between Real Madrid and Barcelona (Barcelona, Copa del Rey, Jordi Alba, Real Madrid)

Judging from the entire interview, he's fine with the challenge, or understanding I should say.

And this is why Barca would suffer in the premier league!

Barcelona would smash the prem lge just like they do to united every time they meet.

Last 6 games: Barca 2 United 1 Draw 3 not really one sided.

And our win came when Xavi, Iniesta, Yay Toure, Messi, and Eto was all in the same team.

Not just that a lot of English teams do well against Barca.

That's against Utd, the PL's best team. The drop in quality after Utd is pretty big. They could be 10 points clear at the top if Liverpool beat City tomorrow. Says it all about the PL really.

I see they are starting to mold him into a typical challenge whiner.
