“When I No Longer…” – Lionel Messi Drops Retirement Plans in Apple TV Documentary ‘The Rise of a Legend’

When will Lionel Messi retire? Will he play in the World Cup 2026? Speculation surrounding these questions has mushroomed since the Argentine maestro fulfilled his long-cherished dream of clinching the World Cup title in 2022. At 36, rumors are abundant regarding his impending retirement. Lately, Messi touched on this topic by acknowledging that an inevitable day was looming when he will ‘no longer enjoy playing.’

However, despite this sobering disclosure potentially upsetting millions, he juxtaposed it with an assurance bathed in optimism. “Currently I am still enjoying it a lot,” concluded the Barcelona legend, indicating indirectly that thoughts of retirement are not imminent.

Also, Lionel Messi’s tenure with Inter Miami is contractually assured until 2025. Yet during these subsequent years, fans may foreseeably encounter the withdrawal of another iconic figure from professional soccer. And that legend is none other than the teammate and friend of Messi,

Luis Suarez is also close to retiring

Before Lionel Messi’s announcement regarding his impending retirement, Luis Suarez made a In a recent dialog, the 37-year-old clearly expressed, “The date hasn’t been set. But yes, Inter Miami is the last club of my career.
