WATCH: Napoli defender Manolas laughs off Messi snub claims

Napoli defender Kostas Manolas has laughed off claims he was blanked by Barcelona ace Leo Messi after defeat on Saturday.

A clip from the post-match salutes showed Messi hugging and shaking hands with various teammates and opponents, before waving his finger in a 'no' gesture at someone just off camera.

It was claimed Manolas was the player Messi was upset with, but the Greek took to social media to laugh off the report.

“Sometimes you should wake up and look at photographs carefully before writing mean things!! I've never seen a player wearing a watch before!!" wrote Manolas on his Instagram Stories.
