'Messi Called Me A Donkey!'

An English pundit, who used to play at the highest level, has claimed that Lionel Messi privately messaged him to call him a "donkey" after certain comments he had made about the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner.

Earlier this season, ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher said he did not believe the Argentine was a good signing for Paris Saint-Germain during a segment on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football.

This past Friday, during an on-air conversation with Gary Neville, the former England centre-back revealed he was contacted directly by Messi for his remarks in a private message on Instagram.

"No, he's not happy with me at all," Carragher said, according to Eurosport.

"I had a little pop at [Cristiano] Ronaldo earlier in the season, didn't think it was a great signing for United, then I said the example of Messi, I didn't think Messi's a great signing for PSG.

"It was on Monday Night Football and I got a private message on Instagram.

"I will not be showing private messages but he basically called me a donkey."

Messi returned to action for the French giants in their 4-0 Ligue 1 win over Stade Reims on Sunday, during which he was introduced as a second-half substitute.
