Players Cut From Argentina Squad By Maradona Revealed
Diego Maradona, the coach of the Argentine national team, took a flight to Europe to advise several of his players that they won’t make up part of his Argentina squad for next month’s crucial World Cup qualifiers against Peru and Uruguay.
Maradona was frustrated with the performances of a number of his players against Brazil and Paraguay and will make drastic changes to his squad.
The 1986 World Cup winner affirmed that he wasn’t happy with the “attitude” of several of Argentina’s European-based stars and that he will drop them from the squad and base his side on player’s who play in the Argentine first division.
According to Buenos Aires newspaper Ole, Gabriel Heinze, Fernando Gago, Javier Zanetti, Maximiliano Rodriguez, Lisandro Lopez and Diego Milito will receive the bad news.
But it has been reported that Sergio Aguero, Javier Mascherano and even Lionel Messi, don’t have their positions in the squad any safer.
When in Europe, Maradona will reunite with the three players, and will ask them why they don’t perform with their national team in the same manner as they do with their clubs.
Apparently Maradona will travel to Madrid to specifically talk to Real Madrid’s Gonzalo Higuain. Maradona is likely to give the player his first official national team call-up.
Maradona was supposed to attend an important meeting about his future on Monday, along with Carlos Bilardo and AFA president Julio Grondona, but surprised everyone by flying to Europe instead, without giving any notification.
