Barcelona top striker Lionel Messi decided to train alone in the wake of the side’s humbling at Juventus, according to reports in Spain.
A double from Paulo Dybala and Giorgio Chiellini’s second-half header means Juve head into the return leg at the Nou Camp with an early advantage in the Champions League quarter-final clash.
Luis Enrique, who steps down as manager this summer, was furious in the aftermath of the 3-0 defeat as tensions continue to rise at Barca amid a frustrating campaign both domestically and in Europe.
Marca suggest the 46-year-old spoke to his players for half an hour ahead of Wednesday’s training session but Messi was not present at the meeting.
Instead, it’s claimed the Argentinian chose to train on his own in the gym ahead of the side’s La Liga clash with Real Sociedad on Saturday.
Neymar was also working in the gym after he was ruled out of this weekend’s match through suspension.
