    Instead he's far too overburdened as there's more and more reliance on him for club and country. Argentina have got no chance next year unless he has a Maradona 86 type tournament in every game, but Argentina were also a good team in 86, they're genuinely shit now. At Barca Neymar and Alves gone, Iniesta and Masch are really getting on and Suarez is playing like a player in his mid 30s. Barca are mediocre in midfield and attack and need and rely on Messi to be great in midfield and in attack.
    The way he got crucified after the last two copa america’s was unfair imo.
    People in general only look at the end result and credit/destroy the best known player for it. With Messi its even more extreme since everyone expects maradona 86 in every match.

    He's dodging the question. If Messi renewned he could have just said so.

    Exactly. He is only doing his job to be a calming factor with the press and the team.
