status at the club with his conduct being often overlooked by the Nou Camp
hierarchy keen to do everything they can to please the four-time World Player
of The Year.

Spain U19 stars Alejandro Grimaldo and Gerard Deulofeu, and gives reference to
some of Messi’s damning words towards fellow Barca team-mates Cristian Tello
and Alexis Sanchez.

and you’re nobody!” and “Pass me the ball, you’re here to play for me.” The
comments reportedly left the young winger in tears.

putting him down in a crass manner. “Considering how bad you are, I’ve no idea
how you cost so much,” and, “Stop shooting so much and give me the ball!”

has a special personality,” he added.
