Argentina Coach Alejandro Sabella has admitted his side are dependent on Barcelona forward Lionel Messi, the Guardian has reported.

La Albiceleste have won both of their games at the World Cup so far thanks to goals from Messi, individual strikes seeing off Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iran. Sabella said at a Press conference that it’s to be expected that a player the standard of Messi takes centre stage but suggested it was a concern.


“Whenever there is a player like Messi, there’s a dependence,” Sabella said. “We are trying to improve but dependence always exists. We have to try to take the pressure off him between all of us because we are a team. But for a great player there is always pressure at a World Cup.


“We have to improve as a group, starting with me,” Sabella continued. “We have to have greater mobility to find space. I am not worried but I am looking for ways of improving collectively.”


Messi’s goal against the Balkans was the first he has scored at a World Cup since 2006, when he netted against Yugoslavia after coming on as a substitute in a game Argentina won 6-0.
