Messi was seen taking a tablet from the bench during a friendly match between Argentina and Slovenia before the world cup started. The score reached 2-0 in favor of Argentina.

This happened at a World Cup qualifier in the Bolivian capital La Paz in March 2013.
But Messi’s father, Jorge Messi, assured fans that there is nothing to worry about. He said “This subject has been around for years now. The necessary studies were done at Barcelona. All the doctors say there is no need to be concerned. It does not just happen to him, but to other great athletes in other sports too.”
He added “It is a bit about the stress, or a little stomach problem, but there is nothing else. There is no need to give it too much attention; he must take precautions and nothing else.”

He left Argentina when he was just 13 and he has been hearing rumors that locals do not think that he plays his best when he is with his team in Argentina. With this he said “Argentina is my country, my family, my way of expressing myself,” when asked by Spanish sports paper Marca. “I would change all my record to make the people in my country happy.”
