Messi will be on the cusp of a new challenge at the international level when he enters the midst of the Copa America next month with Argentina.
The flea has never won any title with the Argentine national team throughout his career, although he has played with tango dancers since 2005.
But Messi has compensated for his international failures in the last 16 years by achieving many achievements with Barcelona, whether domestically or continually, but in the last two years he has come to live. A miserable situation at club level, too.
came the first blow to Messi last season by sacking coach Ernesto Valverde, with whom Flea has a good relationship, but the management decided that it was better to leave him in the middle of the season and sign Quique Setien.
Messi’s failure last season was complemented by the team’s loss of all domestic (League, Cup and Super) and continental (Champions League) championships.
Even more difficult was the fact that the exit from the Champions League happened in a disastrous way when Barcelona fell 8-2 to Bayern Munich.
Last season ended with another blow when the Barcelona administration decided to dispense with Messi’s friend Luis Suarez, free of charge, to move the player to competing Atletico Madrid.
Messi lived another disappointing season with Barcelona this year, as the management failed to support the team with landmark deals, as Barca lost again the League, Super and Champions League titles, while only crowning the King’s Cup.
Messi has competed with Argentina in the Copa America 5 times, but has never won a championship title before.
Messi’s first participation came in the 2007 edition, during which Argentina reached the final, losing 3-0 to Brazil, while Barghout bid farewell to competitions in the 2011 edition of the quarter-finals against Uruguay.
Messi lost the 2015 final to Chile with penalty kicks, and the same scenario was repeated in the 2016 edition in front of the same competitor.
Messi’s last appearance in the 2019 Copa marked Argentina’s semi-final victory against Brazil.
