Diego Maradona has criticised Lionel Messi as "not a leader" in a freaky interview in Mexico.

The former Argentina legend, now managing Dorados de Sinaloa from Mexico's second tier, took some time to chat with LUP's pundits on the current state of Argentina and its main star.

City have often been linked with five-time Ballon d'Or victor Messi, who has spent his entire career at Camp Nou.

However, he has failed to add to his trophy haul or produce his best form in national colours, losing four finals - three in the Copa America and the 2014 World Cup final against Germany.

Maradona has suggested that Messi's antics before a match do not make him a worthy candidate for any kind of leadership role.
