Lionel MESSI was on a television show in Argentina and spoke about a number of topics.

Lionel MESSI commented on his retirement, returning to play in Argentina and more. Here’s what he had to say:

About returning to Argentina:
“I would love to (return). It is something I have kept an eye on because it was my dream as a child. Obviously my life started to change and went another way, but I have no regrets. It’s something I have kept an eye on. I want to play in Argentine football and Newell’s, where I grew up.”

About retiring from the Argentina National Team:
“Retirement from Argentina? It was just what I felt in that moment. Everything was falling around me. I felt like that was going to be our time, because of the way we were playing and we got to the final. It was a huge disappointment. The dressing room was devastated. We all felt that we’d missed our chance.We got to 3 finals and at some point, something must give. We all want to win. I have been fighting with the Seleccion and my dream is to win something. To get so close and not make it was a huge frustration for all of us.”

About his hair and his son Thiago.
“My hair? I made change to start from 0. After controversy and disappointment, I told myself ‘You’ve got to break this and start again’. I don’t buy Thiago many balls or force him to play with them because he doesn’t like them much. Let’s see what happens in future.”

    its still just so unreal, so unkind, so cruel, we simply have no luck in finals while every one else does.

    I felt it was finally going to happen that time, that’s why I was more pissed off after the loss than I was after the WC, not hurt like I was then but just Angry.
