Lionel Messi’s status as the number-one footballer in the world has come under question

Lionel Messi’s status as the number-one footballer in the world has come under question once again after his failure to get Argentina to a major international title in almost 25 years.

This major trophy drought has been created due to several changes at the club over the last few years. Even now, they remain in an unbalanced state with speculation surrounding the future of manager Luis Enrique.

Reports of a fallout between Enrique and Messi have constantly been going around even though the duo have denied those rumours. Read more »
