Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova denies a bust-up between David Villa and Lionel Messi. The pair were seen in a heated exchange during victory over Granada.

"There is nothing to gather [from what happened between Villa and Messi]," Vilanova stated at his post-match press conference.

"Whoever plays football knows discussions are a normality, and part of the game.

"Such occurrences are common signs that a team is alive. Not exchanging views for betterment would honestly suggest worse."
