Maradona claims Messi ‘goes to the bathroom 20 times before a game’

"Messi is a great player but he doesn't get it", said Maradona.

Maradona, speaking from the Mexican state of Sinaloa where he coaches local second-tier side Dorados, said Messi's break was sensible. Then, on the pitch, he wants to be the leader.

In what has been a quiet global break so far, Maradona has just ignited a long-standing debate over who the better player is between himself and the Barcelona star. "But he's not a leader".

Argentina are unbeaten in three friendlies since Russian Federation 2018, while Messi has netted 11 goals in as many competitive club appearances this season.

"Let's stop making a god out of Messi".

Leo Messi could walk away from Barcelona in 2020.

Messi has not appeared for the national team since the last-16 loss to eventual champions France at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

But Al Mubarak confirmed that there was truth to reports City were hoping to recruit five-time Ballon d'Or victor Messi, with former Barca boss Guardiola tasked with speaking to the Argentinian.

Messi has been linked with City several times since former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola was appointed manager of the Premier League club in 2016.

"There's a need to take pressure off him".

"We offered him triple the salary he has at Barcelona, but he never accepted".

But City responded by insisting there was no truth to the report.

The claim emerged from a media conference in the UAE after it was reported that club chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak claimed the Premier League champions offered to triple Messi's wages, but the 31-year-old rejected it.
