Diego MARADONA came out defending Lionel MESSI following his retirement from the Argentina National Team.
MARADONA has defended MESSI, saying that they’ve left him alone and that he would like to talk to him. Here’s what he had to say:
“MESSI has to continue with the National Team, he has to continue! They’ve left MESSI alone and I don’t want him to be alone.”
“I want to talk to him: To fight for those who were left alone, from first to last, from SEGURA until VERON.”
“We have to support more those who can help push the team forward and less those which they say have to go. Those who say they (players) have to go, they don’t see the mess that is Argentinian football.”
“The only thing Leo’s comments do are cover up all the disasters in Argentinian football. They put the kid’s face (Messi’s face) to cover up what the AFA has done and today we’re talking about him and not them. And to cover it all, we lost two consecutive finals to Chile. And with all the respect in the world, they aren’t the Netherlands of 1974. And we lost both. The truth is right now, I don’t believe anyone.”
“I have a feeling they just told him: “Go and for the love of God do something to save us.” We were a mess and they left him alone.”
