Argentina coach Lionel SCALONI has confirmed that Lionel MESSI will not be included in the latest squad.
With Lionel MESSI not appearing at the FIFA Best gala due to family reasons, Argentina coach Lionel SCALONI was present and did speak with the media regarding the Barcelona and Argentina captain. Speaking with Fox Sports, here’s what the coach had to say:
“I spoke with him (MESSI) and we continue to think it’s best that he doesn’t come, he won’t be called. We are in a different stage and these kids (that will be called) have to keep wearing the Argentina shirt to see what they can do, that’s the most important thing.”
The latest Argentina squad is expected to be announced within the next hours.
