Aguero Reveals What Really Happened In Messi Tunnel Bust-Up

The Argentine was reportedly involved in an altercation with a City player in the tunnel at the Etihad after his side lost 3-1 to the Citizens on Tuesday night.

Reports began to surface that Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho was the player on the end of Messi's wrath, but he has now released a statement denying the claims.

"I am totally unaware where from rumours could have emerged related to an alleged argument and provocation on my behalf towards Messi," Fernandinho wrote on Twitter.

"I can only reiterate that news spread by the media are not only false/untrue but absurd, as I did not have contact with any of the players or Barcelona's technical team after the match.

"Instigation and provocation does not reflect my character as I strongly uphold and value respect in and out of the pitch, irrespective of which player or opponent team."
