WATCH: Barcelona captain Messi blanks coach Sarabia TWICE in Vigo

Tension between Barcelona captain Lionel Messi and assistant coach Eder Sarabia was laid bare during Saturday's draw at Celta Vigo.

During one of the scheduled drink breaks, Sarabia attempted - twice - to issue instructions to Messi as the players regrouped on the touchline. But on both occasions Messi deliberately ignored the trainer.

Barca coach Quique Setien was asked about the footage this morning, but would only say: "Nothing, especially. An indication and that's it. I don't know what you want me to say."
