Barcelona coach Martino pleads with media: More to coverage than Messi

Barcelona coach Tata Martino has challenged the media to find stories away from Lionel Messi.

Messi's form is being questioned since his return from a hamstring injury.

"We can't have a news headline for Messi every day. Sometimes I feel like asking you all to not write about him for a couple of days. Hey, why don't we leave Messi alone for a couple of days? I would prefer to let him be calm and relaxed and to continue enjoying seeing the best player in the world," said Martino.
