Gerardo MARTINO spoke to the media and commented on Lionel MESSI, Gonzalo HIGUAIN, Mauro ICARDI and Carlos TEVEZ. Here’s what he had to say:

On Lionel MESSI and the Olympics:
“MESSI won’t go to the Olympic games because there’s a lot of tournaments for the National Team during the year. We have the Copa America, the Olympics and after that three World Cup Qualifying matches. The way things are for Barcelona, it’s going to be a long season“.

About Gonzalo HIGUAIN:
“HIGUAIN’s situation is almost a personal one. I hope everything goes well for him”.

Regarding Mauro ICARDI and the Olympics:
“We have DYBALA, VIETTO and CALLERI, we can’t go with three 9’s but it’s good to have choices. In ICARDI’s case, it’s not the best time”. 

About Carlos TEVEZ and the National Team:
“In TEVEZ’s case, nothing has changed. He remains a player of the National Team”.
