Lionel Messi is tired. Tired of home media, which always hangs but failures up on messi's lack of ability to lift the team to triumph.
For the tough criticism from the fodboldgale nation do not affect only him. His son is also starting to let himself go on it, tell the FC Barcelona star.
- My six-year-old son Thiago asked me why I am being slaughtered in Argentina. He watches videos on YouTube all the time, and he asks me why they (the argentinians, red.) will not have me, says Messi, according to AFP.
Messi took a break from the national team after the disappointing WORLD cup in Russia, but in the last week, he made a comeback in the national costume after eight months.
Again it ended however in failure. Despite superiority in both possession and chances, lost to Argentina 1-3 in a test against Venezuela, which was played in Madrid.
This again led to criticism of the team, and in particular the star of them all, Lionel Messi.
Messi got a minor injury in the fight and was not, as the team a few days after the won a little flashy victory of 1-0 over Morocco.
In 2016, he announced in fact, its stop on the national team after a defeat in the Copa America final, but well a month later he pulled it back.
He says that he will continue to play for the national team, but he also seems to understand that he is by no means satisfied with the treatment he gets by the media in their home country.
- People believe everything that is said. So I am a 'son of a bitch', but those who suffer the most damage, is my family. There are told many lies. Every day there are new lies, saith the attacker.
While he wades in the success of Barcelona, then pinches it something with Argentina, which he has not yet won a big title, despite many attempts.
Four times he has played the Copa America, where the team three times reached the finals and then lose it. The last two times, in 2015 and 2016, you lost after penalty shoot-out to Chile.
He has also been to the WORLD cup four times, in 2006, however, as a very young man, and without much playing time. But finalenederlaget to Germany in 2014 is the closest the team has been the triumph.
Germany has in general been hard on Messi. In addition to the finals in 2014, the germans are also WORLD cup-backstop in 2006 and 2010 - both times in the quarterfinals.
In Russia last summer, France was superiority in ottendedelsfinalen.
