Barcelona:

Johan Cruyff says Jose Mourinho's eye-poke to one of Barcelona's assistant coaches was an "act of arrogance and impotence."

The Real Madrid coach could be banned for up to 12 games for poking Barcelona assistant Tito Vilanova in the eye toward the end of last month's Spanish Supercup, won by the Catalan club.

Cruyff tells El Periodico de Catalunya newspaper that he has never seen such an action in football before and that Mourinho's "obsession with Barcelona has gone beyond the limits."

The former Barcelona playing great and coach also criticizes Sandro Rosell, saying the Barcelona club president wanted to hire Mourinho over current coach Pep Guardiola three years ago.

Guardiola has guided Barcelona to 12 trophies since.
