Messi will not participate in the Olympic Games

Lionel Messi has refused to participate in the Olympic Games to be held in Paris and has already informed Javier Mascherano, the head coach of the Argentine national team, about his decision. The football player's comment was quoted by the Mundo Deportivo newspaper.

"I spoke with Mascherano, and we both understood the situation. It's good to choose, but playing two tournaments in a row is too much," said Messi.
