Argentine legend Diego Maradona has issued a warning to the Argentina football team. Win Copa America Centenario or do not come back to the country at all. Maradona, a world cup winning captain of the Argentina national team and one of the greatest of the game, has been aggrieved by Argentina’s close shaves at World Cup and Copa America in recent years. Argentina made the finals of World Cup 2014 and Copa America 2015 but lost both.
In an interview, Maradona said, “Of course I think we’ll win. But if you don’t win, don’t come back.” Maradona recently sparked controversy by criticising Messi’s personality calling him unfit to lead a team. Messi has been in red hot form in the tournament and shut his critics by taking Argentina to final destroying US 4-0 in the semifinals. Argentina has not won the Copa America since 1993 and if they can pull it off this time, it will be a perfect reply to Messi’s critics.
