Argentine President Mauricio Macri has asked football star Lionel Messi to stick with the national team despite his vow to quit after a humiliating defeat. Argentina's greatest football player Diego Maradona has also asked Messi to reconsider his decision. Lionel Messi arrived back in Argentina yesterday and avoided commenting on his abrupt resignation from the national team after losing the Copa America final to Chile. Dozens of emotional fans wearing the white and sky-blue striped jerseys of the national team, adorned with Messi’s number 10, waited in the rain for the team to arrive back from the tournament in the United States.
