Lionel Messi Has A Special Clause In His FC Barcelona Contract

Diego Maradona lampooned Lionel Messi for using "the bathroom 20 times before a game" and suggested the Argentina star stay in the worldwide wilderness.

"It's useless to make a leader of a guy who goes to the bathroom 20 times before a game", Maradona is reported to have said on The Last World Mexico.

This time a year ago Messi scored a hat-trick as Argentina beat Ecuador 3-1 in a must win game to see them qualify for Russian Federation 2018. "I gave my vote to Claudio Tapia [AFA president], who knows nothing of football, but he betrayed me because he hired Jorge Sampaoli, who is not good enough for Argentina".

Messi and Guardiola worked together at Barcelona, enjoying incredible success by winning the Champions League twice and La Liga three times in a row.

"He's a great player but he's not a leader".

But he has struggled to reproduce the same scintillating form when wearing the blue and white of Argentina.

UN criticised over new human rights council members
The Council is made up of 47 United Nations member states which are elected for three years, with a new cohort joining every year. The UN drew criticism on Friday for allowing countries with dismal human rights records to join its Human Rights Council.

"He does ask for it on the pitch, but before speaking to team-mates he'll go and play the Playstation", Maradona told Mexican programme "La Ultima Palabra".

He has been on the losing side in all four of his finals with Argentina - three in the Copa America and at the 2014 World Cup - and has not scored in four World Cup knockout stages.

After another disappointing tournament in Russian Federation this year, where Argentina failed to get past the last 16, Messi opted to take a sabbatical from worldwide football.

"I wouldn't call up Messi, but never say never".

"Then, on the field, he wants to be the leader".
