Brazil coach, Tite, has disclosed that he was told to shut up by Argentine captain, Lionel Messi during the Selecao’s 1-0 defeat to the Albiceleste in an international friendly encounter on Friday in Saudia Arabia.
GhanaMotion recalls that Messi on Friday night scored 13 minutes after returning for Argentina against Brazil.
Messi, who had not featured for Argentina since he was sent off in the third-place game against Chile at the 2019 Copa America in July, saw his penalty kick from 12 yards saved by Liverpool goalkeeper, Becker Alisson.
The 32-year-old, however, reacted quickly to tuck away the rebound and giving his team a 1-0 lead.
Messi and Tite exchanged words in the opening half, with the Barcelona captain seen putting his fingers to his lips as the Brazil boss complained to the referee.
