UEFA has denied the reports that claimed that Argentina has been invited to be part of the future UEFA competitions after Lionel Messi and co had lashed out at CONMEBOL for Copa America-2019 referee and other fiasco.
“There is no truth whatsoever in the suggestion that Argentina has been asked to participate in UEFA competitions, nor to become a member of UEFA. UEFA has never entered into any discussions on this matter and would never do so,” UEFA statement had said.
Lionel Messi invited a storm of criticism after he openly accused the CONMEBOL of rigging Copa America officiating in order to favour a Brazil victory.
The comments came on the back of Argentina losing 2-0 to Brazil in the semifinals and then ramped up in intensity when Messi was sent off during Argentina’s 2-1 win over Chile in the third placed playoffs.
However, he has since received plenty of stick from Brazilian players and the coach alike, for undermining their victory in the tournament.
CONMEBOL themselves came out with an official statement denying Messi’s accusations.
In the face of all this controversy, FOX Sports had reporting quoting sources in Argentina claim that the national team has an offer from UEFA to participate in the UEFA Nations League if it should decide to walk out of Copa America.
