Messi & Alves hotel bust up

BARCELONA soccer stars were caught up in a late-night hotel clash with fans — just hours before their big match with Chelsea.

The fracas involving Lionel Messi and Daniel Alves led to cops being called to London’s swanky Grosvenor House Hotel.

Fan James McWatt, 19, bumped into the pair in the corridor and asked goal ace Messi to sign a Barcelona shirt he had bought specially. But as Messi went to oblige, Alves started shouting at James and his pals.

Team-mates, including Jose Pinto, Adriano, Thiago and Alexis Sanchez came out of their rooms to see what was going on. A club security guard had to break up the confrontation

A video taken by James on his phone shows the players arguing with the fans before Brazilian Alves demands he stops filming. Minutes later cops arrived and quizzed business student James and his two pals — then forced them to leave the £350-a-night five-star hotel.

The incident happened ahead of Barcelona’s 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge in last night’s Champions League semi-final first leg.

James, of Manchester, was on a shopping trip to London when he saw the players staying at the same hotel. He and Ryan Hill, 18, and Steve Carruthers, 21, bought a shirt with Messi’s name on — hoping he would sign it.

James said: “He was just about to when Daniel Alves put his arm in the way and started screaming at us ‘No’.

“He started going mental at us — shouting and screaming in Spanish. I walked away and heard it getting really heated and filmed it.

“We returned to our rooms. But later hotel staff and two police officers came in and told us the Barcelona team wanted us out.”

James said they were told they were banned for life from the hotel and led outside. He added: “We hadn’t been drinking and weren’t rowdy, just excited in anticipation of meeting Messi.

“The incident was unbelievable. My respect for Barcelona has been destroyed.”

Police said “no offences were alleged or arrests made”. A hotel spokesman confirmed: “An incident involving a small number of guests took place. Four guests were asked to leave and did so peacefully.”

Stephen Carruthers, 20, Nathan Terry and James McWatt, both 19, took the FC Schalke bag the night before the German side’s semi-final against Manchester United.

They owned up after Carruthers was arrested at the hotel the next day wearing the club clothes.

Carruthers, of Withernsea, East Yorkshire, and McWatt, of Manchester, were both fined £200, and Terry, also of Manchester, was fined £65.The city’s Minshull Street crown court judge told them they let themselves down.

But Carruthers later said he got striker Raul’s valuable autograph 20 times, adding: “I’d like to thank him as he’s basically paying the fine.”
