Lionel Messi Knows That To Be Labelled The Greatest Ever He Need Success With Argentina

Barcelona star Lionel Messi has revealed that he knows that to become the greatest player to have ever played the game he needs to be successful with the Argentina national team in a World Cup.

Messi has often been criticised by his home fans for caring more about Barcelona the he does for the Argentina but he has said that he wants nothing more than success for the country under his captaincy.


"I wish we could win as many titles as we can in Barcelona and qualify for the World Cup with Argentina," the 25-year-old told Ole.


"I've had many nice moments with the national team and others that were not so good. Throughout this last year, we have enjoyed things and got together. I always expect to improve in everything, and that includes my career."


The three-time Ballon d’Or winner also extended his best wishes to Tito Vilanova after the Barca coach underwent surgery following a cancer relapse last month.


"Tito lives together with us [in Barcelona] and for him I give my best wishes that his health gets better," Messi added. "Outside of work, I always ask for health, which is the most important thing."
