The coach responded, once again, about the future of Rosario and made it clear that it is not appropriate to talk about these issues with the PSG footballer.
The coach of the Argentine National Team , Lionel Scaloni , spoke about everything during the conference after the win against Curaçao and was once again asked about the chance that Lionel Messi will return to Argentine soccer to play at Newell’s. The one from Pujato opened his arms, implying that it was an uncomfortable question, and with one sentence he summarized what he thinks.
“I don’t know. I’m not in his head, I don’t know what he thinks… It’s not appropriate for me to ask him those things. I don’t know what he’s going to do. What I want is for him to play, to be on a court , that he be happy.
Afterwards, what I want does not make much sense. I would like him to continue playing”, he expressed without extending himself in his response.
Then, he referred to the record that Messi achieved with his three goals: “The 102 goals… I hope there are more. It deserves all the recognition. It’s good that it was on Argentine soil and that also has a special value.”
In relation to the future, Scaloni said: “We have footballers to choose from, today 34 have come. The base is there and will continue to be, it’s up to them not to relax. It’s not easy to play these games and everyone’s desire could be seen. It’s important to rival, but more important is how we face the matches”.
On the other hand, the DT remembered José Andrada, the boy from Salta who made him cry during the Conmebol tribute: “I was moved by how he spoke and by the story he told of his town, many things came to my mind We were once in his place and with the illusion of wearing the Argentina shirt”.
