Sergio Ramos flicks ball away from Lionel Messi during Spanish Super Cup

Omagbemi’s nomination for FIFA Best award ‘not a surprise

The Spanish defender was on the receiving end of a verbal tirade from the Argentine as he reacted angrily to Ramos keeping the ball away from him. Ramos turned towards Messi as if he was handing over the ball and just when Messi was ready to hold the ball, Ramos threw the ball in the air.

With a look of sheer indignation on his face, Messi stared back at the opposing captain, before uttering the Spanish phrase "La concha de tu madre" in his direction. Neymar would score both goals in a 2-1 win.

The second leg saw the Ronaldo-less Madrid completely dominate their fiercest rivals.

Of course, one of the more obvious reasons is that Neymar left for PSG, and showed that even Barcelona, a side who pride themselves on being one of the untouchable sides in world football, have to sell if another side pay the required amount of money for a player - and said player wants to leave.

No war on Korean Peninsula: South Korea's Moon
Bush government froze North Korean assets in a bank in Macau, leading to the North's first nuclear test on October 9, 2006. Kim Jong Un's government has always denounced the joint exercises as a provocative ruse created to hide a US invasion.

The incident compounded a sorry night for Ernesto Valverde's side, who were beaten by goals from Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema.

The first leg of the Super Cup also saw Ronaldo mocking Messi's iconic shirt celebration at Bernabeu in the team's last La Liga encounter on April 23 as the Ballon d'Or victor also displayed his shirt to the Camp Nou crowd.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will again be duelling for the title of world's best footballer after their names once again headed the shortlist on Thursday (August 17) for The Best FIFA Men's Player. But the sporting manager insisted the La Liga giants will make every effort in the current market to make the Argentina worldwide happy again following the humiliating defeat to Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup.

Los Blancos beat the Blaugrana 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu, lifting the trophy after winning the two-legged affair 5-1 on aggregate.
