Roberto Carlos is concerned to see Lionel Messi continue to swallow a series of failures in the Argentina national team. Messi is considered always unlucky when defending his country.
Messi is one of the best footballers in the world today. The 31-year-old has collected 34 titles with the Blaugrana, including 10 won LaLiga and four times won the Champions League.
At the same time Messi’s career at Barcelona was precisely inversely proportional to his achievements in the Argentine national team. The owners of the five Ballon d’Or trophies have not even contributed any trophies to the Tango Team, except at the junior level when they won the U-20 World Cup and the 2008 Olympics.
At the senior level, Messi must repeatedly swallow failures with the Argentine national team. After losing the 2014 World Cup final, Messi also had two consecutive defeats in the 2015 and 2016 Copa America finals.
Seeing the condition of Messi, Roberto Carlos was concerned. The Brazilian legend regretted that classmate Messi had not won anything for his country.
“Messi did not have the same luck while defending the national team with Barcelona, and I really sympathized for that. He is a player that we admire and love as a former player and star now,” said Roberto Carlos, as quoted by Sport.
Messi hasn’t given up on presenting the title to Argentina. At present, the player who has a record of 67 goals from 167 caps in Argentina is ready to compete in the 2019 Copa America, which will be held from June 14 to July 7, 2019 in Brazil.
