Argentina lead trainer Lionel Scaloni demanded hotshot skipper Lionel Messi is upbeat in front of the nation’s World Cup qualifier against Ecuador.
Messi’s Argentina will start their World Cup qualifying effort on Thursday, after the Covid pandemic constrained the way to Qatar 2022 to be deferred in March.
Six-time Ballon d’Or champ Messi is in the crew following a tempestuous slow time of year, having delivered an exchange demand at beset LaLiga goliaths Barcelona.
Gotten some information about Messi just before the qualifier in Buenos Aires, Scaloni told journalists: “I talked with Leo when his contention with Barcelona was settled and I saw him quiet and peaceful.
“Presently we have had a genuinely meaningful conversation and he disclosed to me that he is glad to be here and that he is better at his club.
“From a good ways, we just needed him to determine the circumstance with the goal that he could begin playing and get fit as a fiddle. For me it is positive that he has stayed on the grounds that he has begun to play and knows the climate.
“With respect to individual choices, we don’t get in or attack the players’ spaces.”
Scaloni, whose Argentina have not played since November, included: “Leo will consistently be a forward regardless of the amount he once in a while remains at nine and here and there as second forward. What we attempt is to consistently have three choices up and the upcoming game will be the equivalent.
“I don’t think Leo has changed so much his method of playing or his situation on the court, in the end he is a forward and is consistently in those positions.”
