Argentine retired professional footballer and current manager of Mexican second division club Dorados, Diego Maradona, has lashed out at Barcelona Star, Lionel Messi, claiming that he visits the bathroom 20 times before a match.
Questioning Messi’s leadership, 57-year-old, Maradona said, “He does ask for it on the pitch, but before speaking to team-mates he’ll go and play the Playstation. For me it’s difficult to talk, but it’s pointless wanting to make a man who goes to the bathroom 20 times before a match into the leader.
Messi is Messi atBarcelonaand Messi is Messi with Argentina. I wouldn’t call up Messi, but never say never. There’s a need to take pressure off him. There’s a need to take the leadership away from Messi, as we want him to be Messi, which he wouldn’t be.”
