The Barcelona superstar was always going to reconsider his decision to quit international football, according to the former Barca and Argentina coach

 Former Argentina coach Gerardo Martino insists he knew Lionel Messi would reverse his decision to retire from international football.

The Barcelona star made the shock announcement after his nation’s penalty shootout loss to Chile in the Copa America Centenario final in June.

But, in August, Messi said he would continue playing for Argentina, a decision that Martino – who resigned in July – expected.

“I knew Leo would rethink the idea of retirement,” he told ESPN FC.

“I was convinced the decision to leave the team was after different issues.”

Martino’s first job post-Argentina will be with Atlanta United after he was named coach of the MLS expansion side this week.
