“I don’t understand. The truth is that it’s a joy, a gift from God, to have the best player in the world in a country like ours. Messi is the biggest thing we have in Argentina, so you have to take care of him.
“I told him not to pay attention to all the comments being made because, in truth, we are very happy.”
