There was a clash between Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi and Sevilla Sporting Director, Monchi in the tunnel after their Copa del Rey game on Wednesday,” Diario AS reports.

Barcelona, who were 2-0 behind going into the second leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals at Camp Nou, forced extra time through Gerard Pique’s goal at the death and then went ahead to win it through Martin Braithwaite’s header in the added time to reach the final.

They will now face Athletic Bilbao who defeat Levante 2-1 in the other semi-final on Thursday.

Monchi had called Barcelona boss, Ronald Koeman “crybaby” when Sevilla met Barcelona in the LaLiga at the weekend.

After the Copa del Rey match, he was noticed by several Barca players as he made his way into Sevilla dressing room.

The argument intensified and a very heated situation evolved where Monchi shouted: “You always win the same!”. Then Barcelona players led by Messi replied: “Today, you go home warm.”

The semi-final clash witnessed a fiery atmosphere on the pitch, with Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui expressing utmost displeasure with the officiating.

Luuk de Jong and a member of the Sevilla backroom staff were sent off from their positions on the bench for remonstrating about the decision to not award Sevilla a penalty

Earlier, Fernando was sent off late on after pulling down Francisco Trincao and earning himself a second yellow.
