It passed unnoticed, but Lionel Messi sent an insult Pau Lopez’s way during the Catalan derby at Camp Nou on Sunday, which ended with FC Barcelona beating Espanyol 5-0.
“Walk on moron… idiot,” the Argentine said to the goalkeeper, according to information from EcoDiario.es.
The Argentine made the comments after one of the goals in the five goal rout, which allowed Barça to maintain their lead at the top of the table going into the final game of the season.
Pau stamped on Messi during a meeting between the two sides in January, while he also made comments in the lead up to last weekend’s Catalan derby saying he wanted to take the title out of Barça’s hands.
EcoDiario.es say that Messi made the comments after Luis Suarez scored his first goal of the game, which doubled Luis Enrique’s side lead in the second half.
Messi had previously opened the scoring inside the opening 10 minutes with a fine free kick.
