Since that day, there have been many football legends that have called for Messi to reconsider his decision, but the Argentina forward has yet to make another statement.
Luis Suarez believes that Messi will change his mind and will represent his country again at the highest level. He said that Messi has made these comments in a moment where he was disappointed and sad and that he is sure that he is going to change his mind. He said that it would be a great loss for football if ever Lionel Messi decides that he will no longer play for his country.
Luis Suarez told the media that whatever decision Messi take, it should be respected and that we should not be judging Lionel Messi. He said that he is a quality player and that he has contributed so much to the game in his career.
Many other legends such as Maradona have also pleaded to Lionel Messi not to give up on his national team. Diego Maradona believes that Messi is still young, and he still has a lot to give to the Argentina team. He said that Lionel Messi has a big chance to win the trophy at the next World Cup and that he should not give up now.
