The Argentine found himself surrounded by journalists upon his return to Barcelona from Argentina on Wednesday evening.

One of them asked him about recent comments made by Griezmann's former agent, who claimed that Messi runs a "reign of terror" at Barcelona.

"I'm tired of always being to blame for everything at the club," Messi answered, as quoted by Marca.

Eric Olhats, who represented Griezmann in the past, had stated that that Albiceleste captain has made the Frenchman's life difficult since his arrived at the Camp Nou.

"Antoine arrived at a club with serious problems where Messi controls everything. He's the emperor and monarch at the same time and he wasn't keen on Antoine's arrival," Olhats claimed.

"It's a reign of terror. You're either with him or against him."

Messi, meanwhile, also revealed that he had a run-in with Spanish tax authorities upon his return from Argentina.

"On top of that, after a 15-hour flight, I had the tax authorities waiting for me. It's madness," he added.

The 33-year-old's latest comments show his frustrations in Barcelona once more, with his contract expiring at the end of the season.
