Dad insists Barcelona star Messi will adjust game as pace goes

The father of Barcelona star Lionel Messi insists his son can cope when his physical pace wanes later in his career.

Jorge Messi says Lionel can adjust his game as he gets older.

"When he is not as quick (in the future), he can play deeper, in front of the defence, as a playmaker," argued Messi Snr.

"He is already doing this from time to time, when he often starts moves from right back."
