Barcelona star Lionel Messi has been seen appearing to ignore Quique Setien’s assistant Eder Sarabia during a La Liga match.

Barca dropped more points in their battle with Real Madrid at the top of the table with a 2-2 draw at Celta Vigo on Saturday.

The troubles on the pitch for the Nou Camp outfit come amid reports that there has been a falling out between the players and coaching staff.

And Messi appeared to add more fuel to the fire as he seemed to turn his back on Sarabia while the coach was giving instructions.

In a clip, Messi approaches the sideline during a hydration break in the second half of the match.

Sarabia can be seen as he appears to try to get Messi's attention in an attempt to give some instructions.
