Fans react to Coquelin pulling Messi shirt in Barca win - FCNaija
Copa Del Rey By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 09/02/2018
Football fans are reacting to Valencia midfielder Francis Coquelin pulling Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi's jersey right off in a bizarre incident during the Copa del Rey clash at the Mestalla.It came in the 37th minute shortly after the Argentine received a knock following a collision with Valencia goalkeeper Jaume but strangely the centre referee Undiano Mallenco did not even signal a foul.
The former Arsenal midfielder came in hard on Messi and ended up pulling the Argentinian's shirt over his head in a rather bizarre moment.
Coquelin is a loose cannon literally bullying Messi with or without the ball 😂🤣😂🤣— Yus kaafi Gooner (@kaafi_yus) February 8, 2018
