Lionel Messi has shared insights into his future retirement, indicating that the Argentine star might not have many years left in his active career.

Is Lionel Messi preparing his fans for the inevitable? The ex-FC Barcelona luminary has once more discussed his retirement, a topic that will undoubtedly catch his teams and fans off guard.

With Argentina possibly approaching a new chapter following the retirement of key figures from the 2022 World Cup-winning squad, such as Angel Di Maria and Head Coach Lionel Scaloni, Messi suggested he might also depart given specific conditions, emphasizing that age is not a concern for him.

Continuing to enchant on the field, Messi has addressed the speculation surrounding his career’s end by stating his intention to retire at any sign of performance decline.

Speaking on the Big Time Podcast, he articulated, “I am very self-critical of myself, I know when I am good, when I am bad, when I play well and when I play badly. When I feel it’s time to take that step, I will take it without thinking about age,” underscoring his refusal to settle for anything less than excellence.

Despite being frequently sidelined due to injuries lately, including a recent hamstring issue, Messi clarified that injuries would not dictate his retirement—his ability to contribute would.

“I know that the moment I feel that I am no longer ready to perform, that I am no longer enjoying myself or helping my teammates,” Messi conveyed.

Yet, the legendary player also expressed his determination to persist as long as he feels capable, stating, “If I feel good, I will always try to continue competing because that’s what I like and what I know how to do,” proving that he remains a potent force in scoring or assisting regularly.
