​Former France manager Raymond Domenech has called out Argentinian superstar Lionel Messi, branding him as Barcelona's worst player.

Messi proved quite instrumental in the Catalan side's epic comeback against French Champions Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last week, but that wasn't enough to silence the now Brittany boss.

"Messi is Barca’s worst player," Domenech said, via French publication L'Equipe. "He used to be magnificent, but not anymore. He can no longer keep up."

This follows earlier comments made from just after the incredible overthrowing against PSG, during which Domenech claimed that Messi went missing.

“The worst Barcelona player in this game, it was [Messi]. He was in the centre of the pitch, like when he does not want to run.

“His bad games, he’s always doing that, he’s coming down, he believes he organises, he wants to do everything.

“I think he’s at the end, but he gave so much, he was so magical. He was on and off, he was missing."
