Former Argentina striker, Sergio Aguero, has identified four players who could succeed captain Lionel Messi in the near future to lead La Albiceleste to glory.
According to Aguero, the four players are Enzo Fernandez, Julian Alvarez, Lisandro Martinez and Alexis Mac Allister.
The Manchester City legend said Fernandez, Alvarez, Martinez and Allister all have a winning mentality, just like Messi.
This is coming after Messi led Argentina to win their third World Cup after beating France in the final on a penalty shoot-out on Sunday in Qatar.
“Players like Leo [Messi] appear from time to time,” Aguero told Stake.
“Hopefully, in a few years, another one will come out with those conditions. How Leo appeared after Maradona.
“In the meantime, we have many young players who are taking over and who have the winning mentality, character and ability to continue competing at the highest level.
“Look at what happened during the tournament. Players like Enzo Fernandez, Julian Alvarez, Lisandro Martinez and [Alexis] Mac Allister, just to give a few examples, who initially weren’t starters ended up being so and with remarkable performance.”
