"It is very ugly to see the things that happen in Argentina, that you can go out on the street and people want to rob you and that they can kill you".

"People are waiting for this group to leave because it has not won for a long time and those who criticize get exhausted of always seeing the same faces", Messi told TyC Sports.

Messi along with his Argentine teammates have failed to end La Albiceleste's drought, losing in two successive Copa America finals - in 2015 and 2016, and also finishing runners to Germany at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Messi was coaxed back into the fold and produced a hat-trick against Ecuador as Argentina only made the finals in Russian Federation by winning their last qualifier, and he does not believe the current group will be afforded another opportunity to win silverware in the Albiceleste jersey.

Previous indications that the Barcelona star will head to his homeland to finish his career seem to be in doubt as he fears for his family's safety in South America. What I have are memories.

"And a part of that doubt is due to the way the country is at the moment", added Messi.

"I have come to understand that the season is long and that some periods are more important than others", he explained during an interview with TyC Sports.
