Argentina boss Maradona: I'll get best from Barcelona's Messi

New Argentina boss Diego Maradona plans to build his team around Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Maradona has been critical of the way his predecessor, Alfio Basile, used Messi and declared: "He is a phenomenal player and has to be given the freedom to play without such responsibilities.

"He's 20 years old and is playing for Barcelona, I know how to get the best from him."
