BUENOS AIRES Nike Air Max Classic BW UK , July 7 (Xinhua) -- President of Argentina's football association (AFA), Luis Segura Tuesday called for an end to the mistreatment of star playmaker Lionel Messi after Argentina were defeated in the Copa America 2015 final by hosts Chile.
"I don't understand the people. One can have preferences, make comparisons but to mistreat Messi the way they did is an immense injustice Nike Air VaporMax Flyknit UK ," Segura told Fox Sports.
Lionel Messi, 28, has received harsh questioning and comments after Argentina's defeat 4-1 in the penalty shootout on Saturday.
"There are many football-based conversations" such as "comparing Messi with Maradona or Cristiano Ronaldo" but "the things they are saying are unacceptable" Nike VaporMax UK , said Segura.

ROME, April 7 (Xinhua) -- Fernando Llorente scored a brace to help Serie A leaders Juventus beat Livorno 2-0 at home on Monday and move one step closer to their consecutive third title.
The Spanish striker put the hosts ahead in the 32nd minute Nike Air Max 2017 Womens UK , and headed home his second three minutes later to give Juve three valuable points in the title race.
With third-placed Napoli losing to Parma on Sunday, Juve coach Antonio Conte knew three points against their relegation-threatened visitors on Monday would seal UEFA Champions League football next season.
And the reigning champions, who extended their unbeaten home record this season Nike Air Max 2017 Mens UK , are now eight points clear of Roma in second and 20 in front of Napoli with just six games remaining.
Livorno, meanwhile, stay two points adrift of safety in 18th place.
After threatening through Innocent Emeghara in the opening minute Nike Air Max 2017 UK , the visitors struggled to contain Conte's side and their goal led a charmed life.
Giorgio Chiellini and Stephan Lichtsteiner wasted early chances for the hosts, but Juve's pressure eventually paid dividends with Llorente's quickfire double just after the half-hour mark.
Juve went in front when Tevez spotted Llorente on the left side of the box and he struck the ball towards the far post and out of Bardi's reach.
The hosts then doubled their lead three minutes later when Bardi failed to punch away Andrea Pirlo's corner and Llorente was on hand to nod the ball into the back of the net.
Conte insisted the Scudetto race is not over.
"This is a fascinating season with two teams beating records and doing extraordinary things. People should give credit to Juventus and Roma, but there are six rounds left and you all know what I think about it Nike Air Max 2018 Elite Womens UK ," he said.
"Nothing has been concluded and we must keep going like this," he said.
