Sabella Suggests Messi 'Still Has Room For Improvement'

Argentina manager Alejandro Sabella has struck fear into the opposition by suggesting that star striker Lionel Messi has still not reached his best and he expects the player to continue improving over the next few years. Barcelona superstar Messi is widely regarded as the best in the world. Even though he recently lost the FIFA Ballon d’Or award to rival Cristiano Ronaldo, it is widely believed to be due to his absence from the team for much of 2013. Messi was injured for most of the first half of the campaign.
