Gabriel HEINZE on Lionel MESSI not playing for Argentina: “I understand”


Gabriel HEINZE has given his opinion on Lionel MESSI’s decision of not playing for Argentina as well as the rest of the other players.

The current Velez coach knows a thing or two about pressure. Having played for the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid just to name a few, he’s no stranger to criticism. And when asked about captain Lionel MESSI’s decision of not playing for Argentina next month, he gave an answer. Here’s what he had to say:

“It’s a consequence of everything that has happened. It’s entirely his right to take that decision but hopefully he keeps playing because he’s a player we have to keep enjoying.”

HEINZE was often under fire by fans and the media years ago after a big mistake for Argentina in a World Cup qualifier. An experienced player having taken part in many tournaments with the National Team, HEINZE said that he would understand if MESSI decided not to continue.

“I also I understand if he decides not to continue because what has happened with these players is something which should not be allowed.”
