'Argentina Must Learn To Play Without Messi'

With FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi said to be considering retirement from international football following Argentina’s disappointing 2018 FIFA World Cup, a former Albiceleste star has now insisted the team must stop relying on the superstar to save them.

'Messi Deserves Best Player Award More Than Ronaldo!'

The 31-year-old was heavily criticised after Argentina's exit from the World Cup in Russia, and considering that he has already retired from duty for his country once before, many believe he will do so again.

Former Argentina and Manchester United midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron feels the side has simply become too dependent on Messi.

"It's time to build a group," Veron told ESPN Argentina.

"Obviously, if Leo is eager (to be part of the national team), they would need to involve him little by little.

"I think we have to prepare the base and, once and for all, think about a team and not think about someone who can save us.

"Even more at this time, watching other national teams and how they faced the World Cup, it seems essential to think about a group."

'We Are In Talks With Barca Over Messi!'

Messi has scored 65 goals and assisted a further 44 strikes in 128 matches for Argentina so far.
