The Albiceleste beat Bolivia in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on Tuesday night, but it was what happened immediately after the game that grabbed headlines.
Following the final whistle, cameras picked up a heated scuffle between Messi and opposition captain Marcelo Martins Moreno, as well as Bolivia's physio Lucas Nava, whom the 33-year-old is believed to have called "baldy".
Since his spat with Argentina's captain, Nava, who is also from the South American country, has explained why he got involved in the flare-up, and revealed that he has even received threats from people in Spain following the incident.
"There was probably a misunderstanding," he said, per ESPN.
"The truth is that nothing happened, it's more what was created around us.
"There are normal insults that any Argentinian uses, there was no bad intention. What happened was that the game finished, I saw that there could be a possible brawl and I tried to separate our players so that they wouldn't be sent off.
"When you are part of your team you need to defend them. It hurt me that my son had to listen on TV that this and that about the bald (man). I have had calls from everywhere, even from Spain. I've received insults and threats."
