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.

This coach failed to pick a strong team and dismally failed to tactically plan for the games.
