‘Messi gets too nervous’


That’s the view of Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella, who was commenting after the latest incident when the Barcelona superstar vomited during a World Cup warm-up match against Slovenia.

Messi scored four minutes later, and Sabella believes it’s nothing more than nerves.

“Nerves. I reckon that in these moments there is anxiety more than anything. It’s difficult to remain calm,” he said.

Argentina won’t mind the vomiting if it is followed by goals when Argentina open their World Cup campaign against Bosnia and Herzegovina on June 16.
