Barcelona’s Messi Is Different From Argentina's Messi - Samuel Umtiti

Barcelona’s Leo Messi is different from Argentina's Leo Messi, according to club teammate Samuel Umtiti.

Messi struggled to inspire his country into the round of 16 at the 2018 World Cup.

But he came up with an important goal against Nigeria which was crucial as they qualified for the next round of the tournament.

France defender Samuel Umtiti has been with Messi for two years now at Barcelona and will face off they France take on Argentina in the round of 16.

Umtiti, who is expected to start the match after being rested for the match against Denmark, said:

"I see him every day. It Is very hard to stop him. He’s got outstanding qualities.

"We will try to stop him but he’s not the only one in this Argentina team, they have other strikers.”

"He is different with Argentina than with Barcelona,” said Umtiti.

“He does not have the same players with him and their way of playing is different but he has saved them on several occasions.

"The Argentineans are tough on him, but he cannot do everything on his own.”

"I really feel that he doesn't live football like others do - in the way he sees it, in the choices he makes and in the goals he scores,"

"He just keeps scoring goals after goals. He has it in him. He doesn't like losing. He always wants to win games and titles. I didn't expect that from him because he already won everything. It's his state of mind." Umtiti added.

Argentina finished 2nd in Group D behind Croatia who will now face Denmark in the round of 16.
