‘Messi Not Good For Golden Ball Award’ print


Argentina
icon Diego Maradona feels Lionel Messi did not deserve to win the
Golden Ball following his performances at the World Cup.
The
Barcelona star beat the likes of Thomas Muller, Arjen Robben and James
Rodriguez to the prestigious individual award after scoring four goals
in seven performances at this summer’s tournament and guiding his team
to the final, yet Maradona feels the 27-year-old only won it for
commercial reasons.
“Messi? I would give him heaven if possible,” Maradona said during his show on Telesur.
“But it’s not right when someone wins something that he shouldn’t have won just because of some marketing plan.”

then went on to voice his disappointment with Argentina’s 1-0 defeat in
Sunday’s final against Germany following Mario Gotze’s goal in
extra-time.
“I feel sorry for my country. Mario Gotze’s goal really hurt. There’s a huge sadness in my heart that we lost the final.
“All
things put together, I think Argentina deserved at least penalties.
That Germany won was the result of a misunderstanding in the Argentine
defence.”
The 1986 World Cup winner also had his say on
Alejandro Sabella’s decision to replace Ezequiel Lavezzi with Sergio
Aguero at half-time and argued that the Argentina boss got things wrong.
“I
don’t understand the substitution of Lavezzi. He was phenomenal down
the wing. Kun Aguero didn’t have the same impact. It was not his
tournament.”
