Messi unhappy with Barca assistant?

LaLiga

Reports coming out of Spain claim Lionel Messi was not pleased with the behaviour of FC Barcelona's assistant coach during El Clasico.

It was a disappointing evening for the Catalan giants, who suffered a 2-0 loss to fierce rivals Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Sunday night.

Quique Setien's assistant Eder Sarabia was pictured by television cameras expressing some of his frustration in the dugout, which did not go down well with a few members of the squad.

While there has been indication about who was been spoken about, Spanish outlet Movistar reported that Sarabia said "he's not doing anything he's supposed to" and "he suddenly starts playing and shooting when he has to play the ball".

There was a report from ESPN claiming that Messi expressed his displeasure to Setien's assistant about his actions.

However, Marca have reported that the Barcelona hierarchy did not mind Sarabi's little outburst, although they don't want it to take place in public.

The Catalans resume LaLiga action on Saturday evening with the visit of in-form Real Sociedad to the Camp Nou.
