The Argentine faced angry Roma defender, Mapou
One of the images during Gamper trophy match was the argue between Leo Messi and Roma player, Mapou. At one point in the first half, the referee stopped the match and the defense of the Italian club said a few words to Messi. We don't know what he said, but the Argentine didn't like it, because he faced Mapou violently.
The two gave a header and Messi grabbed him by the neck. Finally, their mates separated the players and the referee showed a yellow card to each player. The calm returned in the "friendly" match.
