Argentina were on the brink of a group-stage exit from the 2018 FIFA World Cup after their humiliating loss to eventual runners-up Croatia, and reports of a player mutiny surfaced at the time.

Argentine journalist Ariel Senosiain, in his new book called Mundial es Historias, has now claimed that Messi and Sampaoli were involved in a heated exchange after that match, which reportedly went as follows, according to Eurosport:

Messi: "What you asked of us did not work, we no longer trust you, we want to have our say now."

Sampaoli: "Your say on what subject?"

Messi: "On everything."

Sampaoli: "Do you want to do the team line-ups, direct the training, do absolutely everything?"

Messi: "You have asked me 10 times with whom I want to play and not play, and I have never given you a name. Dare to say in front of everyone that I have already given you a name."

In the end, Argentina still managed to reach the round of 16, where they were eliminated by eventual winners France, and Sampaoli has since been sacked by the Argentine FA.
