Lionel Messi is reported to have lost his cool following Barcelona’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester City tonight at the Etihad Stadium.

According to several Spanish sources, including Mundo Deportivo, the Barça superstar was involved in an incident when walking down the tunnel at full-time.

An unnamed City player (or possibly players) is said to have insulted the 29-year-old in some way, and Messi responded angrily, shouting, “Fool, come here and show your face!”.

The culprit isn’t named, and Messi’s close friend, Sergio Aguero, had to calm him down after he lost his temper. Cadena SER reports that Messi even went to the City dressing room with Barcelona delegate, Carles Naval, to try and find the person who insulted him.

So Blues, who do you think it was that wound up the great Lionel Messi tonight?
