"I can't remember having seen Lionel Messi play badly," he said.

"There are players who have been touched by a magic wand. We Argentines are proud that Lionel Messi is Argentinian.

When asked if Messi could win the World Cup for Argentina alone, he said: "Alone, he will not be able to win the World Cup.

"You need a solid team for that. Football history will remember Messi.

"Football has given him a lot, as much as he has given the sport and to win a World Cup, in my opinion, wouldn't bring himself anything else."
