Lionel Messi has finally opened up about what he would like to become after his retirement. At least, the Inter Miami mastero is most likely to retire after the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
Apparently, the Argentine magnifico is currently injured. He was subbed off on Thursday for the Herons. As a result, he’s most likely to miss their next Major League Soccer match.
Messi is still rocking and balling with the Argentina national team. Therefore, he’s most likely to participate in the 2026 FIFA World Cup with La Albiceleste.
However, the former Barcelona captain confirmed that he’s ready for the next Copa America. Which means everything depends on his fitness after the 2024 Copa America.
Obviously, Lionel Messi literally won everything in Europe’s top-5 leagues, before joining Inter Miami. As a result, his retirement from the world of football is getting closer.
The Argentine magnifico loves everything about football. Therefore, he would want to stay in the system, even after his retirement, maybe after the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
Messi has now opened up about what he would like to become after his retirement. He made it known that he would love to stay up and running in the world of football.
Lionel Messi said:
“After I retire, I would like to become a sporting director, but I don’t know where to start. I love everything related to football, and I love teaching children too.”
Apparently, the 2022 FIFA World Cup champion would love to become a sporting director after his retirement. Which means he wants to stay active in football.
Lionel Messi has only played for two clubs in Europe’s top five leagues. Which are Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain. Of course, he started his football career with the Culers.
In all fairness, there’s no way Messi would become a sporting director at Paris Saint-Germain. Things didn’t end well between him and the French side.
Despite the fact that he’s at loggerheads with Joan Laporta. Messi Inter Miami is most likely to start his sporting director career at Barcelona.
