Ilkay Gundogan’s double and Kevin De Bruyne’s sublime free-kick secured a 3-1 victory for Pep Guardiola against his former club at the Etihad Stadium.

But the victory was marred by an incident in the tunnel after the full-time whistle, with Messi reportedly involved in a confrontation with City’s players.

Sergio Aguero has revealed that he was the one who calmed his fellow Argentine down following a heated exchange.

But according to Spanish television station La Sexta, it was Arteta who triggered the incident with a remark towards the Barcelona forward.

According to the report, Arteta told Messi: ‘What are you waiting for? Go and get changed, arsehole.’

And Messi allegedly replied: ‘Idiot, come over here, don’t run off and hide!’

Arteta became a member of Guardiola’s coaching staff this summer after he ended his five-year stint at Arsenal.
