Barcelona star Lionel Messi has frequently been criticized for his showings for the national team, which have been in stark contrast to the form he has shown at club level. However, Diego Maradona has rubbished the perception that Messi does not show his true colors for Argentina.
"Just leave him alone and stop with those stories that he is Catalan," he told reporters at a press conference. "He is Argentine even when he goes to the bathroom, stop with those stories. If he cannot perform for Argentina like he does for Barcelona, we just have to wait. He will get tired of all the jerks who comment on him and have never kicked a football."
Barcelona vs Sevilla at Camp Nou today and Messi is going to be a star of the game. What a pity that I will miss the match because it is too late in my time zone. Thanks God that the English Premier League match Liverpool vs Norwich City is still available for me.
