  • Lionel Messi Barcelona Champions League

Keeping Messi's vitality in mind, Argentina's national football association (AFA) president Claudio Tapia has urged the Argentine captain to play fewer games for his club Barcelona.

Argentina is preparing for the Russia World Cup competition in June 2018 and they want their star man fresh and ready to compete in the competition.

With only three months to go for the prestigious quadrennial event, Argentina seem to be concerned about Messi's workload at Barcelona.

And, according to Croat Rakitic, 30-year-old Messi - who is a five-time Ballon d'Or victor - has proved he is top of the tree when the greatest of all time debate is discussed. "Sergio Aguero is playing outstanding right now and Lionel Messi is always at the top of his game", Tapia told Argentine network TYC Sports. "This is important for the coaches and directors, we spoke with Messi for him to look after himself and play less at Barcelona". "We have spoken to Messi about taking care of himself and about playing less for FC Barcelona".

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

Perhaps Chelsea would be well advised to steer clear of the video footage ahead of their Champions League last 16 tie next Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, Barcelona have made good progress not only in their domestic league, but also in the Champions League and Copa del Rey.

Argentina's World cup campaign will certainly revolve around Messi's form and presence, if he is on top the team can expect to be on top, if not then the team might have to salvage the minimal chances that they would be offered.

"Messi had his pre-season which was normal - sometimes the players come off World Cups and other tournaments".
