Lionel Messi: I would like to be more like Germany
Lionel Messi will have one of the last chances to climb his Argentinian compatriots on the world throne, equalizing the achievement of Diego Maradona in 1986.
Although the Barcelona superstar is one of the best players of all time and won all the most important club trophies, when it comes to success with the national team, he still lacks it.
On the eve of the 2018 World Cup, Messi decided to compare his national team with the Bundestag:
“I would like to be more like Germany, because the Germans have another way of preparing, working and evaluating what they can do – they always work in the long run and rejuvenate the team at the right time.
“The World Cup has not yet begun, but be sure that they are already preparing for the next. They can easily send two different teams to the World Cup and win it again, as happened at the Confederations Cup,” Messi said.
