Valdano: Difficult for Barcelona's Messi to live with pressure

Valdano said of his fellow Argentine: "He is under very great pressure. He's already being compared with (Diego) Maradona. To handle all that isn't easy for a young player. Luckily, he appears to be a mature boy."

Valdano added: "A player of Messi's class must always be respectful to his opponents on the field and be flattered by the praise off it."
