Messi needs to take a break, Maradona supports troubled star

The winner of the World Cup has requested an iconic presence in the current squad to avoid traveling with his country and concentrate on matters regarding Barcelona.

Lionel Messi needs space to breathe, a rest, says Diego Maradona, with the Barcelona star being urged not to travel with Argentina.

After a disappointing performance in the 2018 World Cup, a man who captained his country in Russia is weighing his options.

The 31-year-old has been left out of the latest team of the Albiceleste and Maradona believes that the five-time winner of the Golden Ball should take a prolonged break from international duty.

I would give Messi space to breathe, the winner of the 1986 World Cup told Ole.
I would tell him to play in Europe, not to travel any more and not let anybody use him.

He does not need to go to play a friendly just because the team wins more often with him.

Argentina is entering a new era with Messi or without Messi as Jorge Sampaoli has left his position as coach.

The search has begun for his successor, with several candidates shortlisted.

Maradona has suggested that the attention should go to Cesar Menotti, even though the 79-year-old man has been out of management for more than 10 years.
