Man City deny claims of Messi bid

Lionel Messi Argentina 2018

Argentina legend Diego Maradona has slammed Lionel Messi, saying he goes to the toilet too often and focuses too much on video games to be a good leader.

"He's a great player but he's not a leader".

Do you agree with what Maradona has said about Messi?

Guardiola, who extended his contract with City through the end of the 2020-21 season in May, played for both Brescia and Roma in Serie A and was in Italy over the weekend to participate in the Festival dello Sport, where he was asked whether he could imagine returning as a coach one day.

Messi's cousin Maxi Biancucchi branded Maradona, who has battled weight problems as well as addictions to drugs and alcohol, "ignorant" over his comments.

Maradona, who led Argentina to victory in 1986, said Messi, who was again unable to emulate that feat in Russian Federation this summer was expected to be "the saviour of the fatherland". "He is the best in the world along with Cristiano", said Maradona.

After another disappointing tournament in Russian Federation this year, where Argentina failed to get past the last 16, Messi opted to take a sabbatical from global football.

"He is the best in the world along with Cristiano (Ronaldo), (but) it's useless to make a leader of a guy who goes to the bathroom 20 times before a game".

Ahead of the friendly match against Brazil on Tuesday, Paulo DYBALA spoke to ESPN and gave his thoughts on Argentina and Lionel MESSI.

"I wouldn't call him up right now, but never say never", he added.

According to a Daily Star report citing an interview on Mexican programme 'La Ultima Palabra', Maradona blasted Messi for not doing enough for Argentina.national team both in play and leadership. I don't know if we are ready.

However, Messi has not officially retired from the national team.

The comments are sure to hurt Messi, but when he takes one glance at his trophy cabinet we'll sure he'll forget Maradona's unexpected outburst in no time. If he is not, we should try and play as a team and be hard to beat'.
