After disappointing result for
at Quarterfinal of World Cup 2010, Lionel Messi has remained mostly silent. He is perhaps taking some time off and preparing for the next season of La Liga that is supposed to start from 28 August. Spanish coach Vicente del Bosque and Argentina defender Carles Puyol have come forward in support of Messi. Spain
Vicente del Bosque has stated that he would rate Messi as one of the best players in this world cup.
Bosque said, "Messi showed what a fine player he is, but for an individual to shine more then that has to go hand in hand with collective success. He was one of the players of the tournament though he remained a little hidden by the situation of his team."
Anders Iniesta also praises the performance of Messi in World Cup. On the other hand, Carles Puyol has said that he felt that Messi would again become World’s best player.
Most of the fans of Lionel Messi in
and in other countries are also satisfied with his performance. He is still very young and in next World Cup, he will become 27 years old and hopefully, Messi will be at his best at that time. Argentina
