"I do not I compare myself with nobody, they always want to tell me something about Lio, but I'm not going to say anything, because he has always worn ten points with me, but Maradona is only one and let the balls stop," he said in a newspaper interview Olé
The former coach of the albiceleste also noted that he thinks it's time for the national team to give the Barcelona striker a break.
"Yes, I would let him catch my breath, I would say" play in Europe, no longer travel, no longer use. "I would not have to go to a friendly match just because the national team more won with him, that was with me (Julio) Grondona (former president of the AFA), eye, but we in that one In those days we had less money than the child, today it is not necessary for Messi I laugh that he moves to silver.
