Messi gets spat on by Maradona’s son

It’s still and always the shock in Argentina after the defeat against Saudi Arabia. Lionel Messi has been put in his place by the son of Diego Maradona.

The cold shower suffered by Argentina has untied the tongues within the South American country. Arrived with the status of outsiders due to their superb run of unbeaten games, their convincing run in the qualifiers, and a fine 3-0 victory against Italy last summer, the Albiceleste fell from high from their first game. A defeat against Saudi Arabia (1-2) and it is already the qualification for the next round of the World Cup which is called into question. An Argentina accused of being aging, and whose leader Lionel Messi, only penalty scorer, has not escaped criticism. If everything is not yet to burn within the troops of Lionel Scaloni, a voice that carries in Argentina has fallen on the playmaker of PSG. Seven times Ballon d’Or, La Pulga is logically considered one of the best players in history, for his efficiency, his sense of goal and the pass, and also his longevity at the highest level. But for the son of Diego Maradona, born in Italy but who has always declared his love for his father’s country, the debate really does not have to be.

Those who don’t understand football

The comparison between Messi and my father is made by those who really don’t understand anything about football. They are two completely different cases. “, balanced Diego Maradona Junior on Radio Marte. An attack that has necessarily been supported in the country at a time when Lionel Messi seems far from carrying Argentina to the world title, as El Pibe de Oro had been able to do. But for the moment, it’s grimace soup in Buenos Aires and we can’t understand the earthquake of this first match. “ I don’t want to put everything on the back of Lionel Messi right away. I was like everyone else devastated by this defeat. I find it hard to believe that this actually happened. Losing to Saudi Arabia is crazy. They were scared, it’s crazy “, balanced Diego Maradona Junior, who knows that all Argentina is preparing to fall on Lionel Scaloni and Lionel Messi if ever the selection does not pass the first round, or even does not go much further in the competition.
