Diego Maradona has hit out at Barcelona star Lionel Messi, claiming the Argentine is too selfish. Maradona said: "I continue to wonder if Messi may be the next Maradona. It would be very good for the Argentines.

"Messi plays for Messi and forgets his team-mates. If he plays more closely with (Sergio) Aguero or (Juan Roman) Riquelme, it will confuse the defenders more."
