Maradona to meet with Messi and Guardiola

Maradona is currently in Spain and according to a report published in Clarin, the national team manager will be spending time in Barcelona with Messi and his family before leaving for South Africa.

Maradona wants to sit down one on one with Messi and talk to him at length, to get him focused on the world cup and to get him motivated.

Maradona wants Messi to show the same form with Argentina in the world cup as he does with Barcelona.

Maradona also plans to meet with the Barcelona manager to talk about Messi.

Maradona quiere hablar de Messi con Guardiola

El DT de la Selección está en Europa, donde se reunirá con Leo y su familia.

La idea es motivarlo y que en el Mundial rinda como en el Barcelona.

Diego Maradona sigue en Europa, más precisamente en Madrid. Después del auspicioso amistoso frente a Alemania, su tiempo allá lo divide entre los mimos a Benjamín, su nieto, y la planificación del Mundial.

La agenda relacionada a sus funciones como entrenador está bien cargada. Hoy se dedicará a ver en vivo y en directo a Real Madrid, (con Higuaín y Garay) contra Lyon, por los octavos de final de la Liga de Campeones, y mañana a Atlético Madrid con la presencia de Sergio Agüero ante Sporting de Lisboa, por la Europa League.

La intención es seguir de cerca a los que ya tienen un lugar asegurado en Sudáfrica y analizar a quiénes se están jugando las últimas fichas. Uno de ellos es Ezequiel Garay, quien hoy será titular en el equipo del ingeniero Pellegrini.

Pero esa no será la única tarea de Maradona en la Madre Patria. En los próximos días se trasladará a Barcelona. ¿Qué hará allí? Una allegado a él se lo contó a Clarín: “Le va a ir a comer la cabeza a Messi, como lo hacía Bilardo con él.

Lo quiere bien metido porque sabe que con él a full hay muchas chances de hacer un gran Mundial”. Cuentan que Maradona se quedará allá el tiempo que sea necesario. Pretende compartir mucho tiempo con el 10, estar cerca de su familia y también tiene planeado mantener charlas con el director técnico de Barcelona, Josep Guardiola.

La consigna de Maradona es clara: quiere darle mucha contención afuera para que Messi sea en la Selección el Messi que se destaca más que nadie en Europa.

En los últimos días no hubo comunicación entre ellos, salvo, claro, los días que compartieron en la previa al amistoso en tierras alemanas. “Diego no quiere hablar por teléfono ni nada de mails. Además, a Leo, por esas vías, es imposible ubicarlo. Por eso Diego quiere el cara a cara”, revelaron.

El encuentro con Messi todavía no tiene una fecha definida. Puede que sea la próxima semana, o por ahí lo deja para al final de una extensa excursión que abarcará Inglaterra, Italia y Alemania.

    I hope this is good news !?!

    i dont knw about anyone else, but does anyone think Messi might just do it on purpose for some reason???

    now i know he’s not playing with the same players as in Barca, but i just find it strange that he’s in the shadows when he plays for the NT.
    Just like last weeks game when he scored twice, the guy was all over the place on the field, and for the NT, he’s anonymous…i might be wrong, but I just find it strange. he’s a different man when he’s with the barca jersey. its incredible how he gives his ALL for that team !

    sad to say.

      Messi is a different player with the Barca jersey because he is surrounded by players that are capable of delivering quality balls to him and are capable of linking up with him.

      If Messi had Zabaleta, Aimar, Banega, Cambiasso in the lineup:

      Would he receive the ball more often?

      Would the quality of the passes that he received be better?

      Would he have to drop back to the midfield constantly to have contact with the ball?

      I really don’t blame Messi.

      I think its a football problem made worse by Maradona who refuses to see that Messi will not be able to play well in a lineup with fullbacks that cannot make attacking runs and with a midfield that will have two defensive players and an old, injury prone, physically unfit, playmaker.

    I find it odd that Maradona believes that all he needs to do is give Messi a motivational talk and that will cause Messi to play great in the world cup.

    Is he really that clueless?

    Does Maradona really believe that Messi can shine in the world cup like he does in Barca with the lineup and system that he wants Messi to play in during the world cup?

  3. pintadoazulblanco says:

    If that’s Maradona’s plan for Messi, talking to him, instead of putting together a team with attacking fullbacks and an attack minded midfield that will play to Messi’s strength’s and bring out he best in him…….well, Messi will have a horrific world cup.

      I think this is really good news because if he talks to Guardiola i am almost certain he will tell him what Maradona should do and what players he should have surround Messi now will Maradona listen? thats the question but its a good start i think.

  4. pintadoazulblanco says:

    Maradona doesn’t listen to anyone but himself.

    Idk i think he might listen to Guardiola he knows how use messi correctly
