SIlva Claims 'The Only Way To Stop Messi Is To Shoot Him'

Former AC Milan defender Thiago Silva has claimed that the only way Argentine superstar Lionel Messi can be stopped at the World Cup is by the use of a gun. Messi heads into the World Cup as of the best players in the world. Even though his form of late has not been great, he is widely seen as the man who can almost individually win the title for Argentina. Silva has come up against Messi a few times in the club career. Widely regarded as one of the best defenders in the world, Silva himself has struggled against Messi.

Messi Signs New Contract With Barcelona

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has agreed a new contract at the club to make him the world’s best paid player once again. Messi was recently overtaken by Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo who signed a contract that paid him £ 15 million per year. Messi has now overtaken this by signing a contract that gives him £ 15.5 million per year. The two have been intense rivals in the last few years and this contract once again demonstrates this aspect. Messi already had several years left on his deal, but still wanted to sign this contract.


Inter Milan’s season went from bad to worse after they suffered a 1-0 defeat against archrivals AC Milan, who are themselves struggling in the league this season.

Since Inter came into the match on a much better form than Milan, they were expected to comfortably get a win against Clarence Seedorf’s men. The result, however, was a shock for the Inter Milan supporters. Former Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong scored the only goal of the game in the 65th minute to help Milan get a rare victory.


Jose Mourinho has claimed that Argentine superstar Lionel Messi and Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo do not need the help of World Cup titles to prove that he is the best in the world right now.

Both these players have been regarded the finest in the world over the last five years. They have won numerous FIFA Ballon d’Or award and other accolades in order to prove that is the case. However, one blemish from their record is the absence of the World Cup title, which the previous winners of this award have won.


Lionel Messi has made it a habit of scoring in almost every match for Barcelona that it is becoming increasingly surprising that he has scored just once in 2014, while he also went on a run of numerous matches without scoring a single league goal.

He has come in for criticism recently after sustaining numerous injuries this campaign. Manager Gerardo Martino has left it to his defence by saying that the Argentine has not taken well to the criticism from the media. He says that Messi is under immense pressure due to the recent talk about lack of goals.
