Barcelona asked to stop playing Messi

Barcelona asked to stop playing Messi

AFA president Claudio Tapia has pleaded with the five-time Ballon d'Or victor to ask Barca boss Ernesto Valverde for less minutes, but it seems his plea has fallen on death ears.

"I hope all the players maintain their form going into the World Cup".

Messi has netted 61 times in 123 matches for Argentina since making his debut in 2005.

Argentina captain, Lionel Messi has been unlucky three times after losing three back to back finals.

Tapia's comments come at a time when Messi has been in fine form for treble-chasing Barcelona.

Speaking to TyC Sports in Argentina, Claudio Tapia said he wants Messi to not play so much with his club. "We talk to Messi to take care of himself and to play less in Barcelona", he added.

Comcast Considering New Offer for Fox Assets
Political opponents of the Fox-Sky deal, led by Labour Party politician Ed Miliband, continued to argue it should not be allowed. The CMA, which will publish its final report on May 1, had last month outlined three possible remedies for its concerns.

Antonio Conte's Chelsea face the games of their season as the Blues face Barcelona in the Champions League.

"That's vital for the directors and the coaching staff".

Messi has scored 20 goals in 23 league games for Barcelona this season as the Catalan giants sit seven points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of the La Liga table.

Messi's side face Chelsea in the Champions League next week and it looks like the Blues will have their work cut out if the five-time Ballon D'or victor is in this kind of form.

"Tapia also said Argentina are planning to play a friendly against Catalonia in June as part of their preparations for the World Cup in Russian Federation, where they will hope to better their runners-up finish four years ago in Brazil". 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. "If we manage to seal it, it would be something important".
