In the video the chants of “Míchel, Míchel, maricón (queer)” can be heard hailing from a section of the Camp Nou fans and immediately they were whistled out by another section of the home fans as a form of recrimination.

The coach, clearly agitated requested that the linesman inform match-official Pablo González Fuertes of the chants stating: “Para el partido. Me están llamando maricón” (Stop the game, they’re chanting “queer” at me).
