Diego Maradona suggests Messi to quit Argentina National Team

Diego Maradona, the Argentina Football Legend has suggested Striker Lionel Messi to no longer play for the national side.

Maradona stated that the team always put the onus of failure on Lionel Messi which is “crazy”.

“Yes, because if the U15 team loses, its Messi’s fault, an Argentina fixture messes up the domestic calendar for Racing against Boca and Messi is to blame.

I’d say don’t play anymore, it’s crazy, but let’s see if they’re (AFA) brave” Maradona added.

"Yes, I wish he had sent us all to shit because he's not to blame for not being world champion. Okay, we had all the hopes in him, but when you go to the racecourse you have the hope that your horse will win and it finishes eighth," Maradona said.

"In Formula 1, Vettel has a great engine but Hamilton always wins. He is not to blame for absolutely anything, it's not his fault if other people have lost their passion," he added.

Recently Diego Maradona has appointed as the coach of the Mexican Professional football club. He has scored 34 goals in his 91 appearances.

Apart from taking the Argentinean side to World Cup glory in 1986, he mentored the side in the 2010 edition of the prestigious tournament, where the squad went down 0-4 against Germany in the quarterfinals.
