According to Maradona, Messi is the wrong choice for Argentina as a leader, though he feels he is the best player for the country he does not have the qualities to lead others.
In an interview, the 1986 superhero voiced:: “Messi’s a great player, but he’s not a leader.
“Before talking to the coach and players, he’ll play on the PlayStation. Then, on the field, he wants to be the leader. He’s the best in the world with Cristiano [Ronaldo].
“For me, it’s difficult to say it but it’s useless to make a leader out of a man who goes to the bathroom 20 times before a game.
“There’s no two ways about it. Let’s stop making a God out of Messi. Messi is just another player for Argentina.”

But all the Argentine fans are hopeful that he will come back and play for them but Maradona thinks there is no hurry to call him and his recall can be considered.
He added: “I wouldn’t call him up right now, but never say never. We have to take the pressure off him.
“We have to take the leadership away from Messi for him to be the Messi we want him to be.
“I’d make him play as I want. I’d call him up and play him how I know Messi plays.”
So far Messi has earned 128 caps for his country few short from the legendary Javier Mascherano.
