Messi rejects being substituted!

Lionel Messi refused to be substituted by Barcelona coach Luis Enrique during victory over Eibar.


AS says Barca coach Luis Enrique, at 3-0, wanted to replace Messi with Munir El Haddadi on 76 minutes and gestured to the Argenntine to come off.

But Messi blanked the coach’s orders and in the end Enrique took off Neymar for Munir.

Asked about the row, Enrique confirmed: “I have to evaluate everything, but I trust my feelings of what I said and how it is. Throughout the season rest is important, but I think it is a special moment for the team and for him.

“Sometimes I look on from the sidelines and say how lucky we are to have Messi.”
