Many believe that Lionel Messi needs to win a World Cup to underline his greatness, but Diego Maradona doesn't share that opinion.The Argentine legend had his say on what Messi needs to focus on during this summer's tournament in Russia.

"To keep playing and enjoying himself," Maradona said, when asked what advice he would give the No.10."I'd tell him not to look at the critics."He doesn't have to prove anything, whether by winning a World Cup, a Champions League or a Copa del Rey, according to MARCA report.

"He just needs to enjoy himself on the pitch now."Maradona was also asked if he considered Argentina favourites and he said that he doesn't."I know a lot of the players and I know they'll give their all," he said.

"I think they have a good chance."But I don't label them the favourites, because the favourites never go on to win it."Argentina are currently preparing for the World Cup by taking on Italy and Spain in friendlies this week.
