Sabella: Messi is unreal

Argentina national team boss Alejandro Sabella has praised Lionel Messi for 'always seeking to do better'.

The Barcelona forward has enjoyed a record-breaking year for his club and his country, and the 58-year-old Coach has claimed that he has run out of superlatives.

“2012 has been a fantastic year for Argentina,” he told El Dia. “But we have to look to improve. As a team we want to be like Messi.

“Messi is someone who always seeks to do better.

“You can describe something as very bad, poor, fair, good, very good, excellent, outstanding, and above all that – Messi.”

He also commented on comparisons between the Blaugrana man and Diego Maradona.

“The sport has changed,” he said. “Physically, tactically and there is less time to think. For me, Messi is unreal.”
