Lionel Scaloni conversed on Lionel Messi before the World Cup qualifying match against Ecuador on Thursday.
Argentina’s head coach Lionel Scaloni has insisted ahead of Ecuador’s World Cup qualifier that superstar captain Lionel Messi is happy.
Asked about Messi on the eve of the qualifier in Buenos Aires, Scaloni told reporters according to Goal: “I spoke with Leo when his conflict with Barcelona was resolved and I noticed him calm and serene.”
“Now we have had a fairly long talk and he told me that he is happy to be here and that he is better at his club.”
“From a distance, we only wanted him to resolve the situation so that he could start playing and get in shape. For me, it is positive that he has stayed because he has started to play and knows the environment.”
“As for personal decisions, we do not get in or invade the players’ spaces.”
