Barcelona forward Lionel Messi is not player known to be aggressive, but an incident on Wednesday night

The 27 year-old called a Malaga player, ‘son of a whore’ and got the deserving punishment from the 6ft 1 Weligton Oliveira

Captions from the game shows Messi held by the throat and then fall to the ground, probably from a push by the Brazilian Weligton in the 81 minute.

"I tried to prevent him from passing the ball and, after the move finished, Messi turned to me and called me a son of a wh*re.’’

Messi may have acted impulsively to the result which is Barca’s first draw of the season.

Weligton got a yellow card from the incident but remained till the end of the game.

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique gives credit to Malaga for blanking out Messi in the game on Wednesday night

“The fact that Messi didn’t participate so much is a credit to Malaga.

"It’s clear that the more he participates, the more dangerous we are.

“For us, finding Messi is key – and if we find him we will be more dangerous.

"That was what we found most difficult and it’s clearly credit to our rival,” 44 year-old Enrique said in a press conference
