Cristiano Ronaldo fans want Barcelona star Lionel Messi banned for putting his hands on centre referee. 

The Argentine grabbed the match official's shoulder as he appealed for an opponent to be shown a yellow in the second half. His appeal backfired and the centre referee ended up booking the forward. CR7 fans took their disappointments to social media expressing their anger at the fact that Messi hasn't been more severely punished. The Real Madrid star Ronaldo was handed a five match ban after pushing a referee during a match against Barcelona last month.

Here are some of reactions from Twitter:

-Pulling a referee? What Ronaldo has done, Messi just did too.

-Y'all remember what happened when Ronaldo touched the referee? I could swear that nothing happen to Messi.

- Messi gets a yellow card for touching the referee while Ronaldo gets 5 game ban for touching the referee.

- Messi just touched the ref and asked for a yellow, that's a red and 5 game ban if your name is Cristiano Ronaldo.

- If Ronaldo did what Messi did 5 match ban.

- Messi touches the referee, meanwhile Ronaldo gets another two games ban.

- Messi had a physical contact with the ref. Is he going to be banned or that rule is only for Cristiano.
