Diego Maradona is one of the best football players this world has seen, has hit some shots at the hot-shot soccer star Lionel Messi who also happens to be the captain of Barcelona. Diego said that he can never see Messi going ahead and becoming the leader and people should stop expecting this from him as it is not going to happen. Maradona has taken digs at Lionel Messi, earlier as well.
Messi has garnered immense appreciation and fan following over the years; many claim him to be a wonder-man of the football arena. His unmatched skill set and success ratio at club level cemented his position as one of the greatest players in football. And to support these facts, we’d like to mention that Lio has as many as 5 Ballon d'Or titles in his kitty.
Maradona told Argentine newspaper 'Olé' : "I love Messi with all my heart, they want to make him a leader but he isn't able to do that because he's going to be in his sporting world and with his family".
Diego had earlier questioned Messi’s skills to cope with pressure, he said that undoubtedly Messi is a great player but a leader is someone who can tackle pressure but Messi lacks in that department. He had said: "He's a great player but he doesn't do it. It's a waste of time to make him a leader when he needs to go to the bathroom twenty times before a match. He's scared. Let's not depend on Messi any more."
