Legendary Argentina player Lionel Messi has dropped a major hint about retirement in the UrbanaPlay podcast. Speaking to the platform, the World Cup winner for Argentina has said that he does not have anything to win in his career and is happy with the closing cycle.

Messi had originally retired from international football after Copa America heartbreak in 2019. Messi decided to return after his initial outburst and despite multiple controversies in the club football front, Messi continued to shine for his national team.

Messi won the Copa America, Finalissima and then the FIFA World Cup in two calendar years. Speaking at the podcast Lionel Messi said that he has reached the end of his career and does not have anything remaining that he can win.

"It's at the

end of my career, closing a cycle. I achieved everything with the national team I always dreamed. I got everything in my career, individually. It was about closing my career in a unique way," Messi said in the podcast.

"I never imagined that all this was going to happen to me when I started, and getting to this moment was the best. I have no complaints and I can't ask for more. We won the Copa America [in 2021] and the World Cup, there's nothing left," he said in an interview with UrbanaPlay.

Messi said after his FIFA World Cup victory that he will not be returning for the next edition of the tournament which is set to be hosted in 2026. Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni however, was quoted as saying after the World Cup that the door for the national team will forever be open for Messi.
