Messi admits Argentina underperform

Lionel Messi has confessed that he wishes he was as successful with Argentina as he has been with Barcelona.

The attacker has often been accused of caring more about the fortunes of his club side than his national team, but the 25-year-old superstar said he wants nothing more than for his South American nation to succeed under his captaincy.

“I wish we could win as many titles as we can in Barcelona and qualify for the World Cup with Argentina,” the 25-year-old told Ole.

“I’ve had many nice moments with the national team and others that were not so good. Throughout this last year, we have enjoyed things and got together. I always expect to improve in everything, and that includes my career.”

The three-time Ballon d’Or winner also extended his best wishes to Tito Vilanova after the Barca coach underwent surgery following a cancer relapse last month.

“Tito lives together with us (in Barcelona) and for him I give my best wishes that his health gets better,” Messi added. “Outside of work, I always ask for health, which is the most important thing.”
