Raul Albiol, the Napoli defender, has played down the incident.
"I haven’t seen anything strange," he said.
"I guess it is just frustration from the team that we have been eliminated, nothing more.
"Obviously we were all desperate to qualify, Cesc as well, but I haven’t seen anything strange with regards to Cesc."
