He came under fire recently from Antoine Griezmann’s former advisor Eric Olhats, who called Messi’s attitude “deplorable” and said he leads a "regime of terror" at Barcelona.

It is unclear whether Messi was responding to those comments directly, but, after arriving back in Barcelona from international duty with Argentina, he told reporters: “I'm tired of always being the problem for everything at the club.”
