“What happened with Leo [during Copa America] is something that can happen at any moment, this is football,” Mina said at an event hosted by his charity organisation in Guachene.

“Life has cycles, it gives [opportunities for] revenge, but I’m calm because I know that Leo is a great person.

Mina added, “I met him at Barcelona and I thank him for the support that he gave me, I will always respect him.”

“I admire Messi for what he’s, at that time, we were both defending our National Team.

“If I could give my life for my national team, I would give it, but what happened was left [out on the pitch] , there is nothing to it.”
