Malaga president Abdullah N Al Thani has added further fuel to the fire of the La Liga title race with a tweet about Barcelona.
The Blaugrana were alleged to have made comments about Malaga manager, Michel, after their 2-0 loss a few weeks back, a game in which Neymar was sent off.
Thani's side face Real Madrid in the final game of the season, a fixture which could decide the destination of the trophy, but judging from his latest tweet, the game could be shrouded in even more controversy.
باذن الله بينجلدون على ارض الملعب
لكن حثالة كتالونيا لن يشموا رائحة الدوري
بعد تأليف الاكاذيب على المدرب ميتشلhttps://t.co/ZIbeMJjHjq

The tweet translates to: " With Allah's help on the pitch, the Catalan scum won't even smell the trophy after their lies about manager Michel."
So, anyone sensing a bit of a match-fixing vibe? It is certainly not something that will fill Barca fans with any confidence and if Malaga were to dismally surrender to Los Blancos, people will start asking questions.
After Barca's 7-1 win over Osasuna on Wednesday evening, manager Luis Enrique was asked by reporters whether he felt that Malaga could spring a surprise and he answered in rather humorous fashion.
"If my grandmother had wheels, she would be a bicycle," he said to reporters, as per Marca, indicating that he had no confidence in Malaga springing a surprise.
After weeks of looking like it was all done and dusted, the summit of La Liga has exploded into life courtesy of Lionel Messi's injury-time winner in El Clasico.
Now, Spain, along with France, can lay claim to having the most exciting title race in Europe with the two heavyweights going toe-to-toe in the remaining weeks.
