Jurgen Klinsmann hopes to see Lionel Messi win the World Cup with Argentina in 2018, saying the Barcelona star must claim that title to “seal his legacy”.

Messi has led Argentina to a major final each of the past three summers but remains without a senior title on the international stage after falling short at the 2014 World Cup, 2015 Copa America and 2016 Copa America Centenario.

Jurgen Klinsmann hopes to see Lionel Messi win the World Cup with Argentina in 2018, saying the Barcelona star must claim that title to “seal his legacy”.

“There’s a chance he’ll get it in Russia next year,” Klinsmann said. “A player like Messi needs to seal his legacy by winning the World Cup. I want him to win it because he deserves it.”

Messi hopes to lead Argentina to their first World Cup win since a Diego Maradona-inspired side claimed the title in 1986.
