The midfielder fell to the ground rather easily twice in the first half with the second time meriting a response from the former Manchester United winger.

However, Iniesta questioned whether the 24-year-old was the best person to offer advice on diving considering his own sketchy record of staying on his feet.

In the end Zlatan Ibrahimovic came off the bench early in the second half and scored the only goal of the game at Camp Nou just five minutes after being introduced.

"It annoyed me that Cristiano told me not to dive because he is not exactly the best person to tell anyone that," the Barca ace told Onda Cero radio station.

"He should not be telling anyone whether they dived or not."
