Luis Suarez exacted revenge on Ronald Koeman on Saturday night, scoring Atletico Madrid's second in a 2-0 win over his former employers Barcelona.
The Uruguayan was told that he was surplus to requirements when the Dutchman took over in a brief phone call between the pair.
Suarez, after scoring on Saturday, made a telephone gesture and, after the game, cryptically explained who it was aimed at although denied it was for his former boss.
"It was for the people who know that I have the same number and that I am still using the same phone," he said after the match.
"It was not for Koeman, not at all.
"If you want to know... I had been joking with my children that I would do that."
Suarez didn't celebrate his goal due to his respect for Barcelona.
"I already knew that if I scored I would apologise," he explained.
"Due to the respect, my affection, for being another Barcelona fan, for the career I had at Barcelona, for the [tough] period that my colleagues are going through, which is difficult, and the fans. Out of respect."
On the win, Suarez was delighted.
"I'm happy with the team's victory, which is what we wanted," he said.
"The opponents are special due to the moments I experienced, but my work must be dedicated 100 percent to Atletico and today we did everything possible to take the three points."
