Argentina football legend Diego Maradona urged Lionel Messi not to quit from the national team after its defeat in the Copa America Centenario. Maradona said, “Messi has to stay in the national team. He has to stay because he still has playing days ahead of him. He will go to Russia in form to be world champion.”
The 29-year-old soccer player said he had decided to quite after Argentina’s defeat on penalties to Chile there on Sunday. Messi is rated as the best player in the world but that was his fourth defeat in an international final for Argentina. The 1986 World Cup winner Maradona, 55, blamed Argentina’s recent lack of trophies on the country`s football association (AFA).
“Those who are saying he should quit are doing it so that we won’t see what a disaster Argentine football has become.”, he added.
