For Bosnia and Herzegovina head coach Safet Susic, he has to decide what to do with Argentinian superstar Lionel Messi.

“It is a dilemma for me, but to sacrifice a player just to man-mark Messi, I don’t think it would be good for us,” Susic said, via “We have a player who would be ideal for man-marking Messi – this player is [Muhamed] Besic – but this guy is so well prepared physically that it wouldn’t be good for us to make him track Messi. Messi sometimes stands for several minutes, not participating in the match. It would therefore be a shame to sacrifice a player [to mark him]. Messi will probably enjoy plenty of freedom, but each time he gets the ball, somebody needs to be near him. But I don’t think we have ever played a match having dedicated a player to man-mark a specific opponent, and it’s going to be the same [against Argentina].”
