Messi will make Argentina return, says Maradona

Intro

Lionel Messi will return to the Argentina fold at some stage, according to Diego Maradona.

Messi, 31, last played for his nation at the World Cup in Russia and will miss their upcoming friendlies against Mexico.

But Maradona, who led Argentina to World Cup glory in 1986, believes the Barcelona superstar will return to the international scene.

Asked by Marca if Messi will feature in the future for Argentina, Maradona said: “I think so.

“We will see, because if not then we are in trouble.”

Maradona also denied he had criticised Messi earlier this year, when it was said he questioned the attacker’s leadership.
