‘I’m just going to say thank you for the enormous love received. I always dreamed of everything I experienced on this beautiful night. 

‘It was probably my last match in this shirt in Argentina . And to be able to say that it was a wonderful night is an understatement. 

‘Thank you, thank you and a thousand times thank you.

The PSG man suggested that Friday’s clash was his last in Argentina but did not appear to rule out playing in this year’s World Cup.
