The former Argentina fitness coach Carlos Dibos has recently admitted in an interview that the Argentina ace and FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi is not a good leader, and Brazil star Neymar is a better player.
The Argentina National Team are currently facing a tough battle to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, with their recent 2-0 defeat to Bolivia in La Paz leaving them in fifth place in the South American qualifying section with four matches left.
And the 29-year-old Messi was banned for their latest loss after he was hit with a punishment by FIFA for swearing towards an official and, unless an appeal against his suspension is successful.
And the Barcelona star will not return until the final qualifier against Ecuador in October.
Recently the former Argentina fitness coach Carlos Dibos has questioned Messi's ability to inspire the team as Diego Maradona once did on what he said currently Messi is among the three best players in the world, but he's not the best. Today, Neymar is better.
As recently Carlos Dibos told TyC Sports, "I do not think it's wrong for a player to have a dialogue with the coach as to who he prefers or would chose to have next to him, but that player has to have personality, courage, bravery, to be able to carry the team on his shoulders... that was Diego Armando Maradona.”
"That player has to feel that the shirt represents a huge number of Argentines and that we all want the best. Diego represented that and, for me, Leo does not.”
"It doesn't mean that he is bad. For me, he's among the three best players in the world, but he's not the best. Today, Neymar is better."
