Mallorca ruin Rijkaard´s home farewell

Published Add your comment

Frank Rijkaard´s last game in charge of Barcelona at the Nou Camp ended in disappointment as Real Mallorca came from two goals down to claim a 3-2 win on Sunday.

The Dutchman, who is to be replaced by Josep Guardiola at the end of the season after a second trophy-less campaign, saw Dani Guiza snatch a stoppage-time winner to keep the visitors´ UEFA Cup hopes alive.

Borja Valero and Pierre Webo had earlier struck in the space of three second-half minutes to bring Mallorca level after Thierry Henry and Samuel Eto´o had given the Catalans a two-goal lead. Barca also had Edmilson sent off moments before Guiza´s winner.
