First of all, my criticism is not of the opinion of how good he is. The article is full of mistakes. First of all, Messi is left footed not right footed. Read the article again. Secondly, he started the season scoring many goals with his weak right foot. So it wasn't just a simple mistake confusing the right foot with the left one. He is clearly clueless in this point. Maradona was extremely one footed and one of the best ever. Rivaldo was extremely one footed. So the comment that Messi needs to train his weak foot is absurd. No credible football journalist would write this. Only a fan who may have an agenda in his writing. Probably to get page views. Secondly, he is stupid to think that Messi at 27 would be running the same way as Messi at 21. He is judging Messi just based on that and not his overall game. He says he is flaming out young ... the guy has had 8-9 years of incredible performance. Show another player that has done the same. They are very, very few. Titles are won by teams and not individuals. And NT title competitions are few and far between not to mention some luck can play a part as well. If you watch him play for Argentina, he still does great in providing service but he has played much deeper and farther from the goal at times (example is WC 2010). Not to get too much into this, but Pele' always had amazing talent alongside him at NT level. Maradona is the only who can probably claim he carried a team on his back to a WC title to a certain extent. And still, he never won a CA mind you. His one claim to NT success is that one WC. A very thin line don't you think ?
