Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni says he’s “optimistic” Lionel Messi will return to the national team in 2019.
“I do not talk very often with Messi, but we have a relationship,” he said.
”We are going to try for him to join us in 2019, we have pending talks and we are optimistic that it will be positive.
”For us it is something important. Any coach would like to coach him, myself more than any.”

Scaloni replaced Jorge Sampaoli in the Argentina hotseat on an interim basis and will continue to take charge of the team until after the 2019 Copa America.
