Diego MARADONA has continued his backing of Lionel MESSI in his latest comments to the media.
When speaking to DeporTV, MARADONa said that MESSI 'has an incredible future" and gave his comments about MESSI being captain.
"Leo is an fantastic kid, with a family he cares for. He's still only 25, I exploded at 26; he has an incredible present and a incredible future. What are they going to say now, those who questioned him because he hadn't scored for the national team? Those things are said by people who have never been on a football pitch."
It was under Diego MARADONA where Lionel MESSI played his first match as a captain, against Greece at the 2010 World Cup.
"I saw him in that position, as a leader, you don't have to be a charlatan to be a good captain. I was right."
