Diego Maradona pleads with Lionel Messi not to retire from international football


Diego Maradona has pleaded with Lionel Messi not to go through with his retirement from international football, following Argentina’s Copa America Centenario final loss to Chile.

After losing his fourth final for his country – after the World Cup two years ago and the Copa America in 2007 and 2015 – an emotional Messi said: ‘That’s it. It’s over for me with the national team.’
The post-match revelations made waves across the world but Maradona has decided to speak out publicly in an attempt to persuade the Barcelona man to think carefully about his future.
