Napoli defender Kostas Manolas hit out at Spanish media, who suggested Lionel Messi refused to shake his hand after the Barcelona victory, showing it was the referee.
The incident occurred at the final whistle of last night’s Champions League Round of 16 clash at Camp Nou, which ended 3-1 to the Blaugrana.
A clip from the post-match salutes showed Messi hugging and shaking hands with various teammates and opponents, before waving his finger in a ‘no’ gesture at someone just off camera.
