A group of fans confronted Messi at John Lennon Airport airport as he was heading back to Barcelona and Mundo Deportivo claim the 31-year-old spoke to the supporters after hearing their insults.
Messi responded to their abuse by saying: ‘What’s your problem? What did I do? What did I do wrong?’
A Barcelona club official stepped in to guide Messi away from the supporters and there was another group of fans who were there to support their player.
The Spanish press have opted to tear into Messi’s team-mates rather than lay the blame at the Argentina international’s feet.
