Barcelona great, Lionel Messi is believed to have swapped the time he formerly dedicates to international duties for family assignment.
Messi is obviously unavailable for Argentina selection and he thinks the time will be good for the family to enjoy.
The football superstar proved his status as a father by performing some menial duties which include taking care of his son.
He was not shy to disclose in a set of photos shared on Instagram, accompanying his young sons Thiago and Mateo to school on Thursday.
The fact that he saw reasons to post such pictures prove he is happy doing it and will only wish for more of it.
Messi will not take part in The Albiceleste’s friendly fixtures against Guatemala in Los Angeles on Saturday and against Colombia in New Jersey the following Wednesday.
He is obviously not happy being at the national team as he has always being the scapegoal for criticism, each time the national team fails to meet up to expectation.
The woeful outing of the Argentine team where they were eliminated in the second round of the 2018 World Cup in Russia opened the way for what looks like a national team retirement for Messi.
