A countryman of Argentine superstar Lionel Messi's has revealed what it was like seeing the FC Barcelona superstar train for the first time.

Mascherano: Why I Decided To Quit Barca

Tottenham Hotspur winger Erik Lamela, who has 23 caps for the Albiceleste, believes football comes "too easy" for the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, who he feels is the best player in the game.

"He's too good," he said, according to the Daily Mirror.

"It's crazy the way he plays. It's too easy for him, that's why he's the best in the world. I enjoy watching him."

On watching Messi in training for the first time: "I said 'This is not normal'. How he plays is unbelievable. He's too good."

Guardiola: Nobody In The World Like Ronaldinho Until Messi

Lamela was last in the Argentina squad in 2016, and will be hoping to work his way into Jorge Sampaoli's plans for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Do you think Messi can inspire the Albiceleste to success in Russia in June? Let us know in the comments section below.

@mfundom I think u confusing urself dude ,sometimes u count him collectively with his team if the team didn't do well n rub it on messi .do u know that messi is always on top of his game individually that they exclude his team n single out messi bcos he is always play well bt u must know something messi CNT play alone n he CNT always save Argentina ,he cnt win the world cup in his own ,bt he always plays well even if I didn't score bt he still make an impact in the game ,something I won't say abt cr7.

He's too good for Laliga teams. My own opinion "Messi was somehow inconsistence in the past 10 years to be the greatest for me, from 2007-2016 some1 played at least on the UCL semis than him. Some seasons when the going gets tough he'd disappear. take nothing away from him but he mustered Laliga football but sometime when it comes to consistency on the international standard he disappear e.g. 2010 on our home soil world cup he left the tournament with a clean sheet. Some say the other guy has more games than him, its simply because year in year out you find the other guy on at least the semis of UCL. Bear in mind he doesn’t have to change leagues to prove his qualities for me but I strongly believe some1 has done more than him.”
