Sabella ‘not worried’ about Messi

Argentina boss Alejandro Sabella is not worried by Lionel Messi’s fitness, claiming that the Barcelona man is raring to go.

The record-breaking Blaugrana goalscorer endured a difficult campaign, by his standards, missing two months through injury.

But the national team Coach is confident that the forward will be at 100 per cent by the time the World Cup comes around

“I'm not worried about Messi. Far from it – he’s looked good whenever I’ve seen him,” he told Ole.

“The thing is that when a club like Barcelona, who are used to winning, lose, then people get upset… Barcelona players aren't used to that sort of stuff.

“But experiences like that make you stronger. Messi is a top professional.”
