- Lionel Messi failed to inspire Barcelona to a crucial win at Celta Vigo
- Iago Aspas’ goal in the 88th minute broke the hearts of the Catalan giants with the game ending 2-2
- A video of Messi ignoring the Barcelona assistant manager during the game has surfaced online
The in-fighting within the Barcelona camp has taken a new turn as a footage of Lionel Messi ignoring assistant manager Eder Sarabia’s instructions emerges online.
Internal rancour continues to rock the Catalan giants with reports that the players and coaching crew are currently having a face-off.
Video shows the Argentine star publicly ignoring Quique Setien's No 2 as the crisis reached a new height when Barcelona dropped points at Celta Vigo.
Barcelona were cruising to a 2-1 lead until the 88th minute when Iago Aspas sent a curling free, low and inside the front post, to level it the second time in the 88th minute to shatter the hearts of Barcelona. It ended; Celta Vigo 2-2 Barcelona.
It was gathered that commotion ensued within the team in the dressing room, but a video as shown Messi completely ignoring the assistant manager during the game.
In the clip, the Argentine dashed to the touchline during the water break and Sarabia tried to get the player’s attention but the player ignored.
As he takes the drink, a masked Sarabia can be seen trying to get Messi's attention, but rather than staying with his team-mates and heeding the instructions, the club's star man instead walks back onto the pitch and does not respond.
He then comes back to the touchline to put the bottle back, with Sarabia still trying to talk to him, but Messi continues to ignore the coach before returning to the pitch.
The Argentine can also be seen muttering something under his breath as the problems continue to mount for the Nou Camp giants.
