Diego Maradona slams Lionel Messi in weird rant

  • Bayern Munich have won only four of their seven Bundesliga games this season

Although Messi has admittedly played a number of more games for the national team than Maradona managed throughout his playing career, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor has also scored nearly twice as many goals. He's the best in the world with Cristiano [Ronaldo].

This time a year ago Messi scored a hat-trick as Argentina beat Ecuador 3-1 in a must win game to see them qualify for Russian Federation 2018.

"For me it's hard to talk, but it's pointless wanting to make a man who goes to the bathroom 20 times before a match into the leader". Before speaking to the manager, he will be on the PlayStation, and then on the field he asks to be and wants to be the leader.

Messi is a great player but he doesn't get it.

The 31-year-old linked up with Barcelona in 2001, and has gone to become one of the greatest players in the history of football with 563 goals being scored in 648 appearances in all competitions.


Barcelona have reportedly started to plan a new contract for forward Lionel Messi.

But he has struggled to reproduce the same scintillating form when wearing the blue and white shirt of Argentina.

Maradona, who made his comments from the Mexican state of Sinaloa, where he recently took over as coach of local second-tier side Dorados, said Messi's break was a sensible one.

After Argentina endured a hard World Cup campaign in Russia, Diego Maradona has once again taken the opportunity to question the credentials of Lionel Messi. "We offered him triple the salary he has at Barcelona, but he never accepted".
