Osasuna coach Jose Angel Ziganda was unable to contain his frustration after seeing his team slip to a controversial late defeat at Sevilla on Saturday night.

Sevilla took the lead before Osasuna levelled the scores up with 20 minutes, but there was a late twist in the tale. Osasuna midfielder Javi Garcia was adjudged to have handed the ball while under pressure from Sevilla forward Ernesto Chevanton and referee Eduardo Iturralde Gonzalez pointed to the spot - from which Luis Fabiano slotted home.

Ziganda was asked a number of questions about the officiating after the game, and he said: "There is a big problem. Every time that a team pressures the referee they (the referee) favour them, and that cannot be."
