Lionel Messi: Does his coach put too much pressure on him?
Edgardo Bauza thinks it hard, Argentina will win the World Cup thanks to Lionel Messi. But his latest media outing could instead put pressure on La Pulga.
Hope keeps alive. And Edgardo Bauza seems to be a great adept of this maxim. Since he took control of the Argentine selection in the summer of 2016, he first solved the problem Lionel Messi. Remember, the Barça player had announced his international retirement after a further defeat in the Copa America final against Chile. At the time, Leo had not supported a fourth final with the Albiceleste lost (after those in 2007 and 2015 Copa America, not to mention the 2014 World Cup) . Once the messy caca of Messi forgot, Bauza had been able to concentrate on the athlete, for average results (2 victories, 2 draws and 2 defeats). Still in a delicate position as a barbarian (5th in the group) in the Am’Sud zone, Argentina is not yet sure of going to Russia in 2018. Yet Bauza is sure, his selection .This he has once again proclaimed in an interview to TyC Sports , in the show “No Todo Pasa”. It has registered a clear message: “Messi will have our traer Copa del Mundo” ( “Messi will bring us the World Cup” , ed.) Com’s level, Bauza is good because it reassures fans who expect a real title since the Copa America 1993 (it is not the two gold medals in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics that weigh heavily). But we can also ask if he does not expect too much from Leo, who has already experienced four traumatic defeats with his country. And even if La Pulga has regained the motivation to give everything for his country, we never forget the past. That may be why Bauza said: “Messi will not win a game alone, it must be accompanied with a team.” That’s good, Edgardo seems to know football and his job. But he did not invent the hot water either … Discover also the Madridistas who are fans of Lionel Messi .
