Barcelona: Man City defender Pablo Zabaleta claimed he didn't know why he had been sent off as his side were dumped out of the Champions League by Barcelona.
Man City players fume over Pablo Zabaleta sending off
The Argentine was dismissed for a second yellow card with 12 minutes remaining after City had a strong penalty appeal waved away when Edin Dzeko appeared to have been felled by Gerard Pique.
"I don't know why he sent me off. It was a clear penalty and the referee is two metres away from the incident.
There was a clear foul on Dzeko too in the build-up to Barca's first goal, which he gave as a free kick. In the heat of the moment I ran towards him, but I didn't show any lack of respect," he said.
