Pedro denies tension between Messi and Barcelona teammates

Barcelona winger Pedro insists there's no tension between the players and Lionel Messi. Messi was visibly angry with several of his teammates during victory at Granada, particularly reprimanding Cristian Tello for not passing to him.

"It happens to him, to me, to any and all players in that situation, if you do not make the right decision, then this kind of rough response will arrive. It remains on the field, we do not have to give it more importance," argued Pedro.

The winger denies the players are ordered to pass to Messi above all else.

"There is complete freedom on the field. Obviously, you look for some players more than others, such as Iniesta, Cesc, Xavi or Leo. But if you have a chance of scoring , then you can take it."
