Lionel Messi was allegedly involved in an altercation in the tunnel following Barcelona’s defeat to Manchester City last night, according to unconfirmed reports in Spain.
The Argentine striker is said to have being angered with a statement made by the unnamed Manchester City player and Messi responded by calling him stupid.
It was even gathered that Messi also went to the Manchester City dressing room after the game to look for the player but was calmed down by his international teammate Sergio Aguero.
City came back from 1-0 down to beat Luis Enrique’s men 3-1 at the Etihad. Former Dortmund midfielder Ilkay Gundogan scored twice and also Kevin De Bruyne got his name on the score sheet.
