“Improper” Behavior of Messi With the Referee

Referee Jesús Gil Manzano

Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has refused to shake hands with the referee for the Primera Liga match against Girona, Which ended in a draw 2-2, in the fifth round of the Liga, in protest against his decisions during the game.

The shots showed referee Jesus Gil Manzano trying to shake hands with Messi, who opened the scoring for his club, but the Catalan club leader refused to extend his hand and began to scold the referee.

The referee gave the red card to Barcelona defender Clément Lenglet, after using the video technology, and Barcelona played the remaining minutes of the match with ten players

The start of Barcelona was strongly influenced by the dismissal of defender Clément Lenglet in his participation in the starting lineup of the league for the first time after attacking Perry Pons.

But Girona took advantage of it immediately, then Christian Stuani scored the second goal at the end of the first half.

Lionel Messi took the lead in the 19th minute with a shot right after Arturo Vidal’s pass, and almost reinforced Barcelona’s lead after passing through a number of defenders, but the keeper saved his shot.

Striker Christian Stuani hit the net again in the 51st minute to give Girona a surprising lead, but Gerard Becky jumped above two defenders to score a tie in the 63rd minute.

The match saw many arguments, especially after the expulsion of Barcelona player, between the referee and Messi
