Lionel Messi is not happy with comments made by former Antoine Griezmann’s agent regarding his influence on the entire Barcelona squad.

The Argentine was reminded of remarks made by Eric Olhats to France Football last week blaming the 33-year-old of making life difficult at the Camp Nou for Griezmann and his too much weight on Blaugranas decisions.

The agent according to Marca further accused that Messi as not helping former Atletico Madrid forward due to the fact that he was not responsive at his arrival.

"Antoine arrived at a club with serious problems where Messi controls everything. He's the emperor and monarch at the same time and he wasn't keen on Antoine's arrival," claimed Olhats.

"Messi's attitude has been deplorable, he's made him feel it. I've always heard Antoine say he has no issues with Messi, but never the other way around.

"It's a reign of terror. You're either with him or against him."

Messi responded to the unhappy words after he was approached by reporters upon his return to El Prat airport.

"I'm tired of always being to blame for everything," stated Messi.

“On top of that, after a 15-hour flight, I had the tax authorities waiting for me. It's madness" said Messi as he entered his car.
