Berlin:

Bayer Leverkusen director of sport Rudi Voeller says he is going to make two of his players sell off the Lionel Messi shirts that they obtained during the German side's 3-1 Champions League defeat to Barcelona.

Czech left-back Michal Kadlec swapped his jersey with the Argentina star at half-time but his fellow defender Manuel Friedrich took it from him, sparking a dressing room bust-up between the two players.

Kadlec ended up getting a second shirt off Messi at the final whistle.

"Both players overstepped the mark," Voeller was quoted as telling the Bild tabloid on Thursday. "I haven't spoken to them yet but I will."

But Voeller said he had a solution: "I can guarantee that Kadlec and Friedrich will auction off the Messi shirts and give the money to charity."
