About to leave Argentina, Coach Scaloni says Messi is like a ‘magnet’ – Lionel Scaloni: ‘Messi played the World Cup with heart.’

Lionel Messi’s work ethic has been hailed by Argentine coach Lionel Scaloni, who has backed the superstar to play until the 2026 World Cup. Because Messi is still capable of taking down teammates during training, the Argentine coach is confident that Messi will be able to compete in the 2026 World Cup. Messi is a superstar for Inter Miami.

Scaloni acknowledged that despite the 36-year-old’s recent transformation into a midfielder, the Albiceleste team is still centered around him. Lionel Scaloni: “Messi played the World Cup with heart. It was impossible to stop him. Having him around in training is hard to count. You need to watch because what he does is hard to believe. He is happy inside the court.”
