Buenos Aires: Lionel Messi’s explained, in a relaxed conversation with the popular Argentine TV personality Mingo, the reason for dying his hair earlier this summer.
“I made a change to start from zero. A lot had gone on, things had happened, and I said to myself: “I have to break this and start again,'” Barcelona’s No.10 said.
Messi also spoke about the loss in Copa America final, which led to him announcing his international retirment at the time. “It was how I felt in that moment. Everything came crashing down. I felt like that [final] was the one, given how the team was and how we’d played in the competition. It was a huge disappointment,” the forward added.
He has since reconsidered his decision and returned to the Argentina side and will be at the World Cup in Russia in 2018, as long as the Albiceleste qualify, and the Copa America in Brazil in 2019, giving him another shot at a trophy. So far success with his country has escaped him — he’s lost four finals.
