Messi is from another planet - Batistuta

The retired striker admits that a lot is asked of the Barcelona star by the Argentina fans, but they have grown accustomed to his quality
Lionel Messi Argentina Copa America Gabriel Batistuta has expressed his "love" for Argentina captain Lionel Messi, insisting he is the best in the world.
The former Fiorentina man is the highest scoring player in the nation's history with 56 goals and was part of the team that won their last international title - the 1993 Copa America.
The Albiceleste could end their 22 years without silverware, having been tipped as one of the favourites to win the tournament in Chile.
Batistuta believes that a lot is asked of Messi, who is just 10 strikes away from equalling the 46-year-old's goalscoring record for Argentina, but he is unrivalled in terms of his quality.
"I love Messi. Who doesn't? He's from another planet. An extraordinary player," Batistuta told Ole.
"We have a tendency to always ask a lot of him. It's partly his fault because he has already got us used to seeing him at his best.
"Because of this, we don't let him make many mistakes, but there isn't anyone better than him at the moment."
Argentina began their Copa América 2015 campaign with a 2-2 draw against Paraguay and will be seeking three points when they face defending champions Uruguay on Tuesday.
