The former Argentine soccer player, Villa Julio Ricardo, one of the figures of the selection of the Glass of the World of 1978, assured that Lionel Messi will be in the next Copa America, which will be played from June 14 to July 7, 2019, because "he wants to win some title with albiceleste, which is the only thing he needs" in his enormous career as a professional.
"It's hard to know what Leo thinks, but because of his way of being, he must be eager to use whitestone again, he's a poignant and unbalanced player, essential for Argentina, so I wish he had a title that you're looking for, as you deserve ", remarc Villa, based in the city of Roque Prez, in Buenos Aires, in a chat with the agency Tlam.
As for the bad moment that the team is living after the failure of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the former 66-year-old analyzed: "A team can not be armed overnight, rehearsals are needed and the Menotti "skinny" that little one was able to change the history of Argentine football with a project of four years to crown us champions, like the one reached in 1986 with Carlos Bilardo as DT, they gave us a hierarchy.
He continued: "From the work of Menotti and that team, the organization of the Selections was changed, respecting the long-term work, before the stages of the work were very short and adjusted to the level before each competition. Now there has been a setback because working with the National Team today is a bit tricky, because most players have to travel from the outside"
Finally, Villa referred to the work of Lionel Scaloni as coach of albiceleste: "The players arrive quite tired and meet two or three days before a game, with no time at all. He no longer has a coach, he has a player manager and riding them is not easy. That is which Messi suffers, because it is the opposite of what happens with Barcelona, with so much time of work"
