Tells a stunned Tite to shut up

Messi telling Tite to shut up was probably a bit of a slap in the face for the Brazil coach.

The 32-year-old, who scored the winner on his Argentina comeback against Brazil last month, exchanged words with Tite in a friendly. 

The Selecao boss protested to the referee that he should’ve booked Messi for a challenge. However, the newly-crowned Ballon d’Or was having none of it and was caught on camera telling Tite to shut up.

“I complained because he [Messi] should have been shown a yellow card and he told me to shut my mouth and I told him to shut his mouth,” Tite said.
