I haven't spoken to Maradona since the 2010 World Cup' - Lionel Messi

messiedexLionel Messi has revealed that he hasn’t spoken to

his idol and mentor, Diego Maradona since the 2010

World Cup when the Argentina national team

crashed out of the World Cup at the quarter finals

after being beaten by Germany.

The two men are considered to be all-time greats

and you could make a case for either one being the

very best of all time, but things didn't work out well

for both as they didn't perform to expectations at

the 2010 World Cup when Diego Maradona was the

Argentina football team head coach and Messi was

seen as the man to lead the team to World Cup


Speaking on Egyptian TV, Messi said:

“We haven’t spoken in a long time, since the

World Cup [2010] we may have crossed paths

once or twice. He has his life, his things and I

have mine. We haven’t spoken at all.

Considering that we don’t speak to each other,

I have a great relationship with him.”
