"It's useless trying to make a leader out of a man who goes to the toilet 20 times before a game".

Manchester City have denied the veracity of comments the club's chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak was alleged to have made, which were printed in Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo, that the club offered Lionel Messi triple his Barcelona wages to join City.

After Argentina bowed out in the last 16 to France in this year's World Cup in Russia, Messi chose to take a break from global football, a decision which Maradona supports. "Then, on the field, he wants to be the leader", Maradona said as he answered questions in a stumbling voice, sometimes seeming to contradict himself.

Lionel Messi is not fit to be a leader in part because he prefers PlayStation to conversing with team-mates, according to Diego Maradona.

"Let's stop making a god out of Messi".

A cadaver dog from Michigan State Police checked the rest of the building and did not find any more remains, police said. The current owner, Naveed Syed, let them inside, and they found boxes and small casket in the ceiling, Bowser said .

Messi and Maradona are both revered in Argentina as the best two players the football-mad country has ever produced. "Messi is Messi when he wears that shirt and he's another Messi with Argentina".

Maradona, who is in Mexico coaching second-division Sinaloa, said that if he was Argentina coach he would "not call on Messi" before adding "never say never". "We have to take the pressure off him", he said.

But as part of the same story, the Catalan outlet report that there is a rather odd clause in Messi's Barcelona deal that allows him to leave on a free transfer in 2020 - as long as it is a non-elite team.

A sterner test will take place on Tuesday when they face Brazil in Saudi Arabia - without Messi.

Messi reportedly earns over £100million a year as a Barcelona player and is the best paid footballer in the world.
