According to Spanish media, The Argentine clashed with City assistant coach Mikel Arteta in the tunnel, following Tuesday's encounter. 

However, Guardiola has leaped to the defence of his assistant and also questioned the media.

“I spoke with Arteta,” Guardiola told reporters.

“It’s impossible, he admires so many things about Barcelona, the institution, about Messi in this case.

“And knowing Mikel as I know him, he’s one of the best people I’ve met in my life, it’s impossible that he could have an argument with another excellent person like Messi. Impossible.

“First it was Fernandinho, now it’s Arteta, let’s see who it is tomorrow. Let’s see if you finally guess.”
