Diego Armando Maradona he does not lose the opportunity to comment on Leo Messi. The former player and now coach of the Dorados de Sinaloa Mexicans said it is "useless" to try to "caudillo" the Argentine team to "a man who goes to the bathroom 20 times before the game", referring to the Barcelona player, and explained that if he were a coach he would not call him take off the pressure that grips him when he plays with the albiceleste.
It's hard for me to talk to a man who goes to the bathroom 20 times before the match, it's pointless, we do not deify him anymore Messi is Messi playing in Barcelona and Messi is Messi playing with Argentina; Argentina is one more, "he said in an interview with Fox Sports.
In addition, he affirmed that he would not call him if he were to be a coach again. Maradona led Argentina between 2008 and 2010 and took her to the quarterfinals of the World Cup in South Africa, where she was beaten 4-0 by Germany. "I dream of going back to the national team, because I left when the players asked me to stay," he said. "I do not call it [a Messi] because you have to get pressure, you have to get the leader we want it to be. Taking out all the burdens that he has on his back today and making him play as I want, I call him because there is no other Messi, "he added.
"I want to go in Messi's favor, Messi is a great player, but he does not say 'bring me that one.' He goes to play the Play Station before he speaks, he asks for it, he wants it, he looks for it, he wants to make us happy, "he said, stressing that he is the best in the world" with Ronaldo. " Messi has not returned to play with the albiceleste after the elimination in the second round of the World Cup against France; thus, he has missed the two friendlies of the South American team in September and the two of this month.
On the other hand, Maradona, who currently directs Dorados de Sinaloa in the promotion division in Mexico, said that football "is sick of leaders who want to be the protagonists when the protagonists are football players." "At the management level we are very bad, even in Argentina, I gave my vote to Claudio Tapia [presidente de la AFA], who does not understand anything about soccer, but he betrayed me because Jorge arrived [Sampaol]-, who has no category for the selection of Argentina, "he said.
