"You're very short", said Álvaro, Messi replied: "And you're very bad"
The derby between Barça and Espanyol one again was full of tension and quarrels. One of the most intense of those was the one happening between Espanyol defender, Álvaro, and the blaugrana striker Messi.
According to Xavi Campos from the Catalunya radio program "La Transmissió d'En Puyal", who read the lips of the two footballers in the heat of the moment, the conversation was as follows:
- Álvaro: "You're very short"
- Messi: “And you're very bad.”
The chat generated many comments on the social media and everyone emphasised on Messi's original response, "thug life" worth, a good way to qualify the level of coolness the Argentine had while answering.
