Lionel Messi has reportedly been in training ground fight with Barcelona team-mate
Lionel Messi and Marc-Andre ter Stegen were involved in a training ground tiff as tensions at Barcelona boil following the sacking of Ernesto Valverde. There has been plenty of unrest in the dressing room in recent weeks as Real Madrid moved to the top of the table.
According to Spanish outlet El Pais, the two players involved in the dispute were Messi and Ter Stegen. The report states that the pair have generally had a good relationship while playing together, but the discontent at the Camp Nou appears to have spilled over. This new Lionel Messi training ground fight and bustup could mean alot for the performance of the team going forward.
Sporting director Eric Abidal recently criticised the current players, claiming that they had more to give under Valverde.
“Many players weren’t satisfied or working hard and there was also an internal communication problem,” he said.
