FC Barcelona reportedly refused to play Philippe Coutinho against Celta Vigo on Saturday because of his poor attitude.
The Brazil international was named on the bench for the tie at the Abanca-Balaidos after he was an unused substitute in the club's UEFA Champions League win over Dynamo Kiev last Tuesday.
Coutinho was sent to warm up in the first half after Ansu Fati went down injured just before half-time with the Catalan outfit leading the 3-0.
However, the 29-year-old's body language while warming up did not sit well with interim coach Sergi Barjuan, according to Spanish publication Sport.
Instead, Alejandro Balde was introduced at the start of the second half and Coutinho spent the rest of the game on the bench as Barcelona blew a three-goal lead to draw 3-3.
When asked about Coutinho's body language after the game, Barjuan told reporters: "I didn't focus on any of that, I was watching the game, which was very demanding.
"In 10 days I've felt everyone gets along with me.
"It's clear that with those who haven't played, it's harder. I've had to take decisions and he did not play today."
