Riqui Puig has been slammed for watching Money Heist immediately after Barcelona’s humiliating 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
The 22-year-old was substituted on following Jamal Musiala’s nail in the coffin to make it three and knock Barcelona out of the Champions League group stages for the first time in 20 years.
Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane had put Bayern 2-0 up initially, having displayed their physical and tactical superiority over the Catalans throughout the match.
And Puig, who is yet to cement his place as a starter for the side, was on the receiving end of some criticism from the Spanish media after being caught watching popular Netflix series Money Heist after the match.
A guest on Spanish analysis show El Chiringuito raged "Yes, but no, for Barca's image, not today, he can't watch Money Heist."
Barcelona legend Lobo Carrasco, who represented the side throughout the 1980s, was left looking gutted.
He glumly responded: "I prefer not to have an opinion.”
Meanwhile new boss Xavi admitted he felt “angry” at the result, which he deemed a “harsh reality” of current standards at the club.
The manager said: "Today Bayern were better than us, they were superior.
"We have tried, we have pressed high, taken the ball from them but our situation is the harsh reality that we have.

"Today is the start of a new chapter for us and we have to start demanding a lot more from ourselves, we must use this as a turning point to change many things.
"Today we did not compete with a top team and our reality is that we are a Europa League team.
"We are going to face this reality with all the dignity in the world and work to bring Barca back to where we deserve to be, which is not the Europa League.
"It really annoys me to face our reality, I am angry. Barça does not deserve this. There are many circumstances that have made us like this.
"I feel responsible for the outcome, I thought we could qualify but it has not been like that. Anyone who tries never fails.
"Our Europa League challenge? We have to win it, win every game and title."
