Lionel Messi ‘did not feel comfortable’ playing in Bolivia

Argentina’s coach says Lionel Messi ‘did not feel comfortable’ playing in Bolivia, adding to ongoing ιnjury concerns. Messi is currently playing for Inter Miami.


Since Lionel Messi was left off the roster for Argentina’s match against Bolivia, his stint as captain of La Albiceleste has come to an end.


It appears like Messi will soon be returning to Miami after declining to play in the Estadio Hernando Siles, which is located at an altitude of 3,637 meters (11,932 feet).

When asked about it, Lionel Scaloni, manager of Argentina, simply stated that his captain couldn’t play.No, Leo was not game-ready. He had attempted a recovery the day before but was still uncomfortable. The Albiceleste manager stated, “We did not rιsk it” when asked about La Pulga’s absence.


Also, as Scaloni pointed out, “important things are coming,” thus it “was not necessary.”Argentina, the reigning World Cup champions, handily defeated Bolivia, 3-0, on the road, thus Messi’s absence was hardly felt.

With that win and the 1-0 victory against Ecuador a few days earlier, Argentina has ascended to the top of CONMEBOL’s challenging World Cup qualifying.Messi, a starter for Argentina, scored the game-winning goal in Buenos Aires’ Monumental Stadium.

Now he’s going back to the States to try to be game ready for this weekend’s showdown against Atlanta United.


Inter Miami is currently six points away from a Wild Card berth and twelve points away from automatic qualification for the MLS Cup Playoffs and are making an effort to catch up.
