Argentine football legend Diego Maradona has advised Lionel Messi to ignore the critics and lead his country to glory at the World Cup.
The star of Barcelona has never won this trophy and may have the chance to lift this coveted cup. But for this, the player will have to follow the advice of his compatriot.
“I would advise Lionel Messi to continue playing and having fun. He must not pay attention to what is being said, to critics. He can win the World Cup, the Champions League, the King’s Cup and the Championship. He has nothing to prove to anyone and he just needs to have fun in the field, “said Maradona during a promotional event.
He also gave his opinion on the Argentine selection. “I do not know Sampaoli, I do not know how it works. But I know a lot of players and I know they will give everything. Argentina has a good chance to win the World Cup. But I do not put them in the favorites, because in the end, the favorites never win.
Argentina will face Iceland, Croatia and Nigeria in group matches.
