The Albiceleste legend says the 28-year-old plays better for club than country but still feels he has been unfairly vilified by fans and the press

Diego Maradona says Lionel Messi's performances for Argentina are nowhere near the standard he sets at Barcelona.

The 28-year-old scored just one goal in this summer's Copa America as the Albiceleste finished as runners-up in a major competition for the second time in 12 months.

Maradona, who led his country to victory at the 1986 World Cup, feels Messi's displays for the national team are not good enough but also took a swipe at his critics.

"We have the best player in the world and he scores four goals against Real Sociedad but comes here and doesn't touch the ball," he said in Ole.

"You ask yourself: 'Are you Argentine or Swedish?' Criticising him is easy.

"Don't say any more that we have to pamper him. He should be treated just like any other player in the national team.

"[But] Messi hasn't killed or raped anyone - let's not make a big deal over this."

:thumbsup::lol:

thing is though that u shit on messi all day long for being totally shit with national team(which is not exactly true).so if messi wins in in russia u ll call him better than maradona?[/QUOTE]

Nope

FYI... Messi's record for Arg is nothing to write home about.

All of his WC goals came in the group stages vs fodder opposition.

He even sucks in the Copa America :fp:

But as a player Messi is pretty one dimensional... U know what his next move is... Its just a matter of anticipating it. Where as the likes of R9 and Diego could beat the opposition in a variety of ways. They could also score a whole variety of different goals.

If we are to out messi alongside the like of Diego and R9, then we might as well put Beckham and totti in the same category as Zidane, Ronaldinho etc etc.

he sucked more than maradona in copa america?
cause messi has reached 2 finals.losing both in penalties

but my question was if he manages to win it in russia and plays like he plays in barca, then you ll consider him as great as maradona>?
