Maradona speaking to the media

Maradona spoke to reporters yesterday after attending a World Cup book presentation.

Maradona said that Palermo has the same chances of making the WC squad as all the other players. He said that Palermo is an example as a person and as a player.

Maradona also said that Argentina fans should not worry about the World Cup because he is taking a team of men, men that feel the Argentina shirt.

Maradona said that it will be painful for him to leave out of the WC squad players that have given alot to the Argentina shirt and that are playing great this season.

Hmmm….I wonder who he is referring to?

    He is referring to most likely Zanetti, and Cambiasso. If Maradona does not call them up it is something personal, he plays favorites.

    And he may have meant that comment about Pablo Aimar too.

  3. pintadoazulblanco says:

    So, Zanetti & Cambiasso have given alot to the national team and are in great form this season but will be left out of the WC squad.

    Jonas Gutierrez, Otamendi, Clemente Rodriguez, Angeleri have given very little to the national team and are not in great form but will make the WC squad.

    Ok then.

    Angeleri, and Clemente are not in national team level, they just are favorites of Maradona thats why he is taking them. His defenders should be what is best out there right now, Zanetti, Samuel, Demichelis, Heinze, Otamendi, Burdisso, and Milito.

    Jonas ha splayed well so I give him that, he is in better form then Maxi Rodriguez. He also should just call 5 strikers, why do we need 6? were not going to use all of them. The best strikers right now are Messi, Higuain, Tevez, Milito, L.Lopez or Palermo(because he deserves it, probably the best in the world at headers) should fight for that 5th striker position

    I need to disagree with you on some mikeyB,

    first off, I agree with you about Angeleri and Clemente being some of his favorites, we all know they should stay off the NT.

    But I have to disagree with you about you stating the “best we have right now”: Heinze and Otamendi.
    Otamendi is no where near NT level, he hasn’t done squat since the first time he was given a chance, Heinze, is done with, he fouls way too much, and I dont think we should take a chance with him in the WC..
    Not sure if you follow PL, but Maxi R. has been picking up his form lately with Liverpool, and I believe he deserves a look at before Diego makes his final list, depending how he continues to play in these next few games. .
    Jonas??? I admit, he busts his ass on the field, he hustle’s for 90 minutes, but he doesn’t grab my attention.
    Defenders I would consider: zanetti,zabaleta, milito, demichelis, samuel, Garay, Insua….

    as for Strikers: Higuain, messi,tevez, milito, Licha,
    maaaaaaaybe Palermo, as a Option, he’s one of those strikers that would score on you at any given moment, and does those “wonder goals” that will leavin you saying “how the F did he do that from that angle !?!

    but u want my honest opinion? i would take lisandro instead of Palermo,

    but we all know thats not going to happen…

    Lavezzi has been doin good lately as well, before his injury he sustained this week.
