Barcelona star Lionel Messi has denied he is a 'little dictator' ahead of Saturday's La Liga bout with Celta Vigo.
The Argentine, who is set to become a father, has had one or two on field arguments with his teammates this season, leading Mundo Deportivo to ask if he is too domineering.
“I don't care what they say, my teammates know that I am not like that.”
Barca are top of the table looking for their ninth win in 10 League matches but still cannot afford a slip up with Atletico Madrid hot on their heels.
The visitors have had a disappointing week, pegged back by Deportivo La Coruna for a draw in the Galician derby and beaten 2-0 by Almeria in the Copa del Rey.
Narrowing the Celestes already slim chances even further, is the fact that they have the second worst away record in the League, having lost all four awaydays thus far.
Kick off: Saturday November 3, 5.00 (BST)
