Lionel Messi Completely Ignores Barcelona Assistant During Drinks Break
Lionel Messi completely ignored Barcelona's assistant manager during a drinks break in the 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo.
Eder Sarabia, with his Barcelona face mask on, was trying to give Messi instructions but the Barcelona talisman did his best impression of a rebellious 12-year old by not listening whatsoever,.
He blanked Sarabia on a couple of occasions as he takes a drink and puts it back - even walking away from Quique Setien's right-hand man.
Footage of Messi not having a care in the world for Sarabia's tactical advice has been doing the rounds on social media courtesy of Movistar El Partidazo.

There appears to be some tension between Messi and Sarabia, with there being reports in the Spanish press that the Blaugrana captain isn't on the best of terms with the coaching staff.
In March, Messi reportedly had a 'hard chat' with Barcelona's No.2 following the 2-0 El Clasico defeat to Real Madrid due to his touchline conduct.
Cameras caught Sarabia berating the Barca side during the game and Messi is said to have told the 39-year old 'exactly what he thinks', as per ESPN.
There's a lot made of how much influence Messi has at Barcelona and the above video footage would suggest he does hold a great deal of power at the Nou Camp.
