Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni spoke about Lionel Messi, Ángel Di María and Lautaro Martínez.
Lionel Scaloni commented on Lionel Messi and Ángel Di María’s futures with the Argentina national team. Speaking in an interview with Tuttomercato, here is what he had to say:
“Ángel is a champion, everyone knows what they can do. He will play as long as he wants, I hope he will play for a long time.
“Obviously I follow him, Dybala too. They are great players but above all, great people and that is very important to me.
“I was his team mate and I started with that advantage. Managing him is great, he knows very well how to play a match, how to press, how to defend.
“I think the most important thing at the World Cup was the togetherness between the team, the fans, the coaching staff and hte people. Seeing the people close to us in every match.
“Being at the next World Cup will be Leo’s decision. If his body can take it, for me, he will be there.
“What I said about Messi is the same for Ángel Di María. As long as his body can take it, he will be called up.”
The Argentina coach also spoke about Lautaro Martínez:
“Lautaro has always been important for me and has always been my favorite striker. He had a few problems at the World Cup and we had to think about what was best for the taem. He knows that very well.
“He was there when we needed him and the penalty against the Netherlands. We love him and we are happy that he has also taken charge of Inter.”
