Lionel Messi rejected 'huge' deal from Premier League club before extending contract

Argentina, who have not won a major global trophy since lifting the Copa America in 1993, were last week drawn in Group D for next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation, alongside Nigeria, Croatia and Iceland. I think that we have time to improve in these games and before the World Cup. when we'll have a month to put everything in order before the start. It'll be hard for some to stay on, ' he told TyC Sports.

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has explained how he feels about being a substitute on occasion at the Catalan club.

But the 33-year-old's time at the Nou Camp could also be reaching its conclusion due a lack of match action.

"It has very good players, very fast, that if you leave spaces they take advantage of it, but they also let you play and they leave you spaces".

Buenos Aires: Lionel Messi has given his backing to out-of-favour Argentina team mate Gonzalo Higuain and said the Juventus forward should be recalled to the national side in time for next year's World Cup finals.

"For me he is one of the best number nines in the world. It looks easier from the outside".

Last Friday, Argentina, Nigeria, Iceland and Croatia were drawn together in World Cup Group D.

But Manchester City knew that they have to act swiftly if they had any chance of luring the 30-year old Barcelona star to the Etihad Stadium.

Jorge Sampaoli's side nearly did not qualify for the tournament, but a Messi hat-trick in their final qualifier against Ecuador secured their spot in Russian Federation.
