Barcelona star Messi full of praise for Martino

Barcelona star Lionel Messi says he's happy playing for coach Tata Martino.

Messi is currently nursing a bad hamstring injury.

"Tata is a phenomenon as a person, besides everything he knows about football. I had already seen what he was like when he was Paraguay's national team coach, and Newell's manager. He's amazing when he speaks and it only confirmed what I thought of him when he got here," said Messi.
