Lionel Messi admits difficulties playing together with Dybala
Argentina captain, Lionel Messi has admitted that it is difficult to play alongside fellow teammate, Paulo Dybala in the national team.
Messi said he had struggled to partner with Dybala on the pitch because the Juventus star plays just like him.
The Barcelona star believes both of them are more comfortable playing on the right, which has hurt their chances of forming a partnership in the Albiceleste squad.
“I spoke to Paulo about [those comments], what he said is the truth,” Messi told FoxSports .
“At Juventus he plays just like me, we look for the same spaces. Alongside me in the national team he had to play more on the left, maybe he’s not so used to that.
“It is harder for us to play there, I rarely venture down the left-hand side. On the right we can cut inside and we have the whole pitch in front of us.
“The truth is that I understood exactly what he meant, there was nothing that needed clarifying.”
Messi and Argentina will be back in action on Tuesday against Spain in an international friendly match, having beaten Italy 2-0 on Friday without their captain.
