Maradona Slams Argentine Team, Compares Messi To Argentine Comedian

Diego Maradona has heavily criticized the Argentine captain,
Messi over their loss against France that led to Argentina crashing out
of the tournament yesterday.

Lionel Messi saw his country exit from the round of 16 encounter
against the European side after his unconvincing role that called for
the Argentine iconic head.

However, the Argentine coach left his proven strikers Gonzalo
Higuain, Sergio Aguero and talented Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala on
the bench and handed Lionel Messi a false nine position of which Angel
Di Maria and Cristian Pavon where on both wings.

Lionel Messi’s display led to the Argentine Legend Maradona attacking
the Barcelona player, thereby comparing him to Patoruzu, an Argentine
comedian.

Maradona said, (I watched Leo very closely; Messi was very far from
the goal. Yes he was put at No 9 but he has to bring the game together.
We are talking more about Patoruzú than about Lionel Messi).

Diego Maradona also laid dig on the Argentine manager Jorge Sampaoli on his selection of the starting XI.

Maradona continued, (It was evident from the formation, Pavon, Messi
and Di Maria had to go to attack, they had to get in the area around the
penalty box, push the centre-backs and trap them in. Yes they can
create play, but; they are not forwards).

Nevertheless, the Argentine Legend has been causing stir on the way he celebrates his country whenever they score.

During the match between his country Argentina and Nigeria, he was
examined by the medical staff at the St Petersburg stadium after he was
seen causing and using his fingers in laying the abuse.

Now that his Nation have been eliminated from the world cup, we are yet to learn if he will continue watching matches.

at the kids, go through the good things that the boys leave us with even
though they won’t be there anymore, We have to try to inculcate the
sacred fire that at times seems to be lacking in Argentina).

Lionel Messi is yet to make announcement on his International future,
but many believes that this will probably be his last world cup outing
as he will be 35 at next world cup in Qatar come 2022.
