Argentina asking Messi to play less for Barcelona

READ MORE Messi the Mountain King – Five things learned from Ecuador 1-3 Argentina

Lionel Messi has often been criticised for not being able to replicate his trophy-laden club career at the worldwide level.

With only three months to go for the prestigious quadrennial event, Argentina seem to be concerned about Messi's workload at Barcelona.

"I hope all the players arrive in the level they are at the moment", Tapia told Argentine network TYC Sports.

"Sergio Aguero is playing fantastically and Lionel Messi is always strong. This is important for the coaches and directors, we spoke with Messi for him to look after himself and play less at Barcelona".

It is becoming increasingly common in Quetta for militants to target security officials, along with religious minorities. The assailants have repeatedly targeted security personnel and government officials in the area.

Tapia said he has had a word with the Barca talisman about keeping himself fresh for the World Cup, "We have spoken to Messi about taking care of himself and about playing less for Barcelona", he was quoted as saying in a report. Barcelona will pay a visit to SD Eibar's Ipurua Municipal Stadium on Saturday with hopes of continuing their unbeaten run in the league, as they eye a treble at the end of the current season. After scoring 28 goals in all the competitions this season, Messi is emerging as an early favorite to win the Ballon D'Or in 2018, but the Argentine is less focused on it and is more focused on winning collective honors with this teammate.

With the La Liga title looking likely to be claimed by Barcelona, who sit seven points above second-placed Atletico Madrid, the Argentine football association is hoping the Catalan club will do them a favour and give their star forward some rest before the World Cup.

Wishful thinking, Claudio. Barcelona is first in La Liga, in the final of the Copa del Rey and is once again a contender to win the Champions League. Notably, the former champions will face English Premier League giants Chelsea in double-legged Round of 16 matches in the coming weeks.

Argentina is hoping that Barcelona wins the title with a couple of games remaining to allow Messi to have a short break before heading to Russian Federation.
