Messi confronted Arbeloa and Karanka after the Clásico

Leo Messi did not have his finest night in a Barcelona shirt on Wednesday during Barcelona's 1-1 draw with Real Madrid, and things did not go well for him off the pitch either.

Following the match the Argentine had two confrontations with Madrid staff, first with Álvaro Arbeloa and then with Madrid assistant coach Aitor Karanka.

According to television programme 'Punto Pelota', Messi was spotted having a go at Arbeloa in the Bernabéu car park and shouted "idiot" at the full-back, who was accompanied by his wife.

Meanwhile, television channel 'La Sexta' and radio station 'La COPE' both reported that Messi had a row with Karanka in the tunnel immediately after the final whistle and shouted at the Madrid assistant: "Shut up, you are just Mourinho's puppet."

Messi went into the game hoping to equal Alfredo Di Stefano's record of 18 goals in the Clásico but had a frustrating night, despite providing the assistant for the opening goal of the match by intercepting a weak ball by José Callejón into the path of Cesc Fábregas, who shot past Diego López and into the net.
