Brazil defender, Thiago Silva has slammed Argentine captain, Lionel Messi for his conduct during Argentina’s 1-0 victory over the Selecao in an international friendly encounter on Friday night in Saudi Arabia.

DAILY POST had reported that Messi, who scored the only goal of the match, told the Brazil coach, Tite to shut up when he exchanged words with the Selecao boss.

Argentina captain Lionel Messi and Brazil coach Tite exchanged words during the clash between the South American giants on Friday but it was the forward who had the last laugh after his team’s good run continued with a 1-0 win in Saudi Arabia.

The Barcelona forward was one of the outstanding performers for Argentina on his return to international football after missing four games through suspension.

He scored the only goal after 14 minutes his penalty was saved but he followed up to beat Alisson and could have had another couple of goals but for some stout defending and the keeper’s awareness.

The result was encouraging for Argentina, who have now gone six games without defeat their longest such run since 2016.

Lionel Messi asks Brazil coach Tite to ‘shut his mouth’.

Messi looked to the touchline and put his fingers to his lips before making another hand sign that appeared to tell the Brazil coach he had too much to say for himself.

Reacting to the development, Silva accused Messi of showing signs of disrespect, adding that the 32-year-old was guilty of trying to officiate matches on his own and place too much pressure on the officials.

“Messi wanted to rule over the game,” Silvan was quoted by Metro UK as saying after the match.

“He kicked two people and the referee did nothing.

“I argued with the ref and he kept laughing. You have to put admiration to one side.

“He always looks to force the referee to give them free-kicks in dangerous areas, he always acts in that way.

“We spoke with some players who play in Spain and the same thing happens, he looks to control the game and the referee’s decisions.

“You don’t see him trying to rule so much. There are referees that, because of their admiration for him, start to weigh in on his side. That we didn’t have Neymar on our side was a disadvantage.

“It’s hard to understand when we talk about respect on the pitch, and one of the most admired players in the world does that, you don’t do that to an older person but being that it was a coach.

As much as there is rivalry, respect has to come first.”

The Brazil coach played down the incident and highlighted Messi’s performance in the well-deserved friendly victory.

“From the very start we tried to play. We had a couple of misses and they had their chances,” Messi said.

“But in the second half we were much better.

“When you win, it puts you more at ease and that is very positive for what lies ahead.

I ended the match well, we all ran quite a bit. And that is what we were there to do.”

“I complained because he (Messi) should have been shown a yellow card and he told me to shut my mouth and I told him to shut his mouth,” Tite said. “And that was it.”

Argentina play Uruguay in a friendly next week while Brazil face South Korea.
