Argentine legend and hero Diego Amando Maradona has released another set of bomb to his fellow country men in the Argentine National Team. Meanwhile Don Diego had some words of praise for Messi and said he is the only good thing for Argentina ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Maradona made his comments in an exclusive interview in Dubai with the newspaper El Popular from the United Arab Emirates , where he serves as technical director of the Fujairah club.
On Jorge Sampoli
When asked about the current state of the Argentine Team, Maradona said that “from Sampaoli I do not want to talk, first because he betrayed me and second because I want him to do well. Because no one tramples my flag, nor does anyone whistle. We had a project with Sampaoli in Seville. He called me when he was watching the Davis Cup final in Croatia, imagine how desperate he was. ‘Call me when you’re in Dubai and we talk,’ I said. ‘No, Diego, Sevilla wants to pay you a tribute,’ he tells me. ‘How? Do not fuck with me, I played three games in Sevilla. It’s the same thing that Fiorito’s do for me, “I said. It did not make sense. What happened there is that he had everything arranged with the National Team and he wanted to use me for the photo. He wanted me to be his shield … “, assured the Fluff.
Messi and The Chance to win the World Cup
As for the options of the Albiceleste to win the World Cup after 32 years of drought, Maradona said that “being well the baby (by Messi) cover all the other things. The problem of Argentina is the backward movement, which we do not have. And we do not have midfield. I say, without offending you, Biglia … have you ever imagined wearing the shirt of the Argentine National Team? With all the respect in the world that he deserves me. You know what it is that screws me, that it cost us a lot to respect us, that Argentina is afraid of it. Today, except for Messi, they have lost respect for the team’s jersey. Look what was the last game with Nigeria, we almost ate eight, please, you know what happened in my time in a match like this … But Sampaoli is lucky, if the baby is illuminated, he will cover all the mistakes . If he is with the lights on, we have a 60 percent chance of being a champion. Why? Because others can do the choir, but they can never replace it by singing. He is the only singer, the rest is not … ”

On Tevez, his return and Di Maria’s lost focus
Maradona also spoke of the debate in Argentina about whether Tevez deserves an opportunity to go to the World Cup. For the former player there is no debate: “But of course. It is not a debate. We do not have anything else. We are scratching the stones to get a nine, one that overflows. Carlitos also has the sacred fire, contagious. The other day Di Maria was asked what his dream was: ‘Win the Champions’, he said. And the World Cup with the National Team? That’s how they think. ”

He also chose Gonzalo Higuain ahead of Mauro Icardi. Diego believes that “without hesitation” Higuain deserves an opportunity with Argentina. “What happens is that the technician is a liar. We hide things and the technician is the first to tell the truth. For example, he has to say that he does not have a nine goalscorer on his list, even if he calls him the embarrassed Icardi, then we go to death with the Pipa. Pipa is ten times better than Icardi, that boy does not know anything. What he knows is going to eat at the house of friends, that knows it perfectly, it goes without GPS. For that reason, Pipa has to have a new chance, “he said.
Departure from Argentina
On how he left Argentina after his departure as coach, Maradona said that “it hurts me a lot, but the reality is that Argentine football is going badly and I do not see a way out” and he highlighted the problems of current football by saying that “Menotti had his seal, Guardiola has his stamp, Mourinho has his stamp, I have my stamp. Play well on the ball, have possession of the ball. A team has to have the ball, the runners are the marathoners. I do not come to fuck with those devices that tell you that a player made the court back and forth four times. Please. What is it for? You have to run a little and run with the ball, “he said, criticizing the defensive coaches who” made the game shit. They destroyed it. They worried more about their bow than about the front arch and the soccer, maestro, always played and played by scoring goals in the opposite goal. The day they change the rules and win the one that does not get goals, then they will be champions, “he said.
Maradona became the coach of Argentina in 2009 and left after the 2010 World Cup where he lost woefully in a 4-0 debacle by Germany in the quarter finals. But is regarded as the greatest man to wear the sea blue and white jersey after leading the team to win the 1986 World Cup in Mexico and also placing second in the 1990 World Cup.
