After FC Barcelona completed an incredible comeback over Sevilla in the Copa del Rey semi-finals this week, Lionel Messi was said to be involved in a spat with sporting director Monchi. Here is what was reportedly said.
The Catalan club overturned a two-goal deficit in the second leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final on Wednesday night, winning 3-0 in extra-time to advance and give themselves a chance of claiming silverware in what has been a difficult season.
In the 120 minutes played, Julen Lopetegui's side had two players sent off and were also denied a penalty late on after a suspected handball in the box, decisions that infuriated the away side.

According to RAC1, Sevilla sporting director Monchi was among those angered by the situation, with the 52-year-old reporting calling Ronald Koeman a "crybaby" after the game.
Monchi was then believed to turn his attention to Messi, telling the Argentine: "You always win like this", perhaps insinuating Barcelona were aided by a few of the referee's decisions.
Seemingly delighted with his team's performance, the 33-year-old reportedly hit back at the Sevilla chief as he headed down the tunnel, saying: "Today you're going home nervous."
The Blaugrana will play Athletic Bilbao in the final of the competition on 17 April.
