Inter Miami coach Tata Martino hints at Messi's dilemma between Copa América, Olympics

Posted : 21 February 2024

Inter Miami coach Gerardo 'Tata' Martino suggests that Lionel Messi may face a dilemma between participating in the Copa América or the Olympics this summer. Although not directly mentioning Messi, Martino cites the example of Messi's MLS teammate Diego Gómez, who has both tournaments on his schedule.


Martino emphasizes the need to prioritize one competition over the other, expressing concerns about players being away for an extended period, given the proximity of the 2024 Copa América in the United States and the Olympics in Paris.


The 2024 Copa América is scheduled from June 20 to July 14, just before the commencement of the Olympic Games. With the MLS season running concurrently with the Copa América, Martino voices his opposition to players competing in both tournaments, advocating for a focused commitment to the national team.


While Martino does not directly mention Messi, his remarks suggest a general stance on managing players' participation in overlapping competitions.


Messi, 36, has a rich history of representing Argentina, winning gold at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Having recently secured the 2021 Copa América and captained Argentina to their third World Cup title, Messi faces potential decisions regarding his involvement in international tournaments this summer.
