Lionel Messi snapped at fans standing outside Barcelona's training ground as they filmed him driving away from Camp Nou.

The club captain was greeted by hoardes of supporters as he left - something he's clearly dealt with hundreds of times before. But on Sunday, the 33-year-old finally appeared to tire of the attention, and hit out at fans.

In a video shared on social media, Messi is seen saying a strong word or two to the Barca faithful hoping to get a glimpse of their hero.

Messi said: "Why do you keep filming the same video if you have already done this many times? They've already made a lot of videos. You can't spend all day here. Do you think it's normal doing the same every time? Stop."

The fans quickly apologised, saying "Sorry Leo!" to the Blaugrana legend and dispersed from the gates of the stadium.

Messi's situation at the club is very precarious right now, with speculation continuing over his future, as Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain continue to circle for his signature.

This is not the first time Barcelona players have got annoyed with supporters for similar antics. Neto and Samuel Umtiti have both raised complaints in the past, and Antoine Griezmann was targeted in November, as furious fans told the Frenchman to show Messi more respect.
