Thiago Silva hits out at Lionel Messi after telling Brazil coach to shut his mouth

After Lionel Messi told Brazil coach Tite to shout up, skipper Thiago Silva has slammed the Barcelona forward for his actions.

Messi who was returning from a three-month international ban after accusing tournament organizers of fixing the Copa America in Brazil’s favor.

The Argentine skipper scored the only goal of the game in the 14th minute after a rebound from his penalty and had a row with Tite in the first half as he gestured at the Brazil boss to be quiet while he complained to the referee.

Speaking after the match, Silva slammed Messi, accusing him of showing signs of disrespect, "He wanted to rule over the game. He kicked two people and the referee did nothing.

"I argued with the ref and he kept laughing. You have to put admiration to one side. He always looks to force the referee to give them free-kicks in dangerous areas, he always acts in that way.

"We spoke with some players who play in Spain and the same thing happens, he looks to control the game and the referee’s decisions."
