Paris Saint Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino has given the details on his awkward exchange with Lionel Messi after last Sunday'ssubstitution.
The Parc des Princes stadium and social media spaces were struck on Sunday night as the 34-year-old was taken off after 76 minutes in PSG's 2-1 Ligue 1 win over Olympique Lyon.
Messi's facial expression and allegedly refused to shake his manager's hand created huge drama.
The Argentine manager soon had to explain the exchange during the post-match conference.
"I asked him how he was, he said he was OK," Pochettino said, according to Metro.
"That was it. That was our exchange. No issues," he added.
Meanwhile, Messi and manager are now focused on the Ligue 1 trip to Metz this Wednesday.
