Argentina Captain Lionel Messi has said that he is hugely disappointed with the postponement of Copa America but said it was right thing to do amid global pandemic of Coronavirus.
World of football is limping back to normal with teams like Barcelona also having started its training session and date of La Liga start also having been announced.
Messi spoke about the issue in an interview with Yahoo Sports this week and revealed he was disappointed to learn he would not play for Argentina this summer, but that is all in the past and the Barça captain is ready to play again.
“Pushing back the Copa America was a huge disappointment, but of course it was to be expected and was the reasonable thing to do. The Copa was going to be a big occasion for me this year, and I was extremely excited to compete in it again. It hit me hard when I learned it would be postponed, but I completely understood.
“We can’t dwell on what we’re leaving behind this year. It’s better to look to the future. To getting back to the daily training routine, to seeing team-mates, to playing the first games. I’m sure it will be strange at first, but I’m very eager to start competing again!”
