Martinez plies his trade with Ajax and his form since moving to Europe has caused many in his home nation to tip him for big things with the national team.

“He is a born leader,” Martinez said of Messi to EFE, and hopes that he will remain in the setup “for many more years”.

“It is very nice to observe how he plays, how he sees things differently, how he anticipates the action.

“It is just a matter of watching him and observing him because he is incredible.”

Martinez has earned one cap for Argentina but is unable to link up with the Albiceleste this time due to COVID restrictions, and the 22-year-old is desperate to re-join his national team at the next opportunity.

“It would be a dream come true,” he said.
