Lionel Messi will not rejoin the Argentina national team this September for friendlies against Guatemala and Colombia and is unlikely to play again in what remains of 2018, sources have told ESPN's Diego Monroig.

"It is always attractive to play against him", Tevez told reporters.

It promises to be an evening of good football and of pre-season festivities.

Messi and Barcelona, fresh off winning the Spanish Super Cup on Sunday, take on Boca Juniors on Wednesday for the Joan Gamper Trophy in a friendly at Camp Nou. "I was in his spot and the truth is that with so much criticism, sometimes, I didn't want to go".

Barcelona legend Hristo Stoichkov has told Argentina's fans to lay off Leo Messi.

"Messi will not return this year and there are doubts about his future", proclaimed Argentinian daily Clarin, while news website Infobae said: "He will take a rest period, but that doesn't mean he's quitting". "I think we should all leave him to make his own mind and make the decision that will make him happy".

Messi´s next chance to win his first major worldwide title will be the 2019 Copa America in Brazil. "You have to know what model you want and if you want to depend on Messi or on 22 players".

"How does Argentina want to play?"
