World Cup 2018: Stars Don't Pick Argentina Team - Diego Maradona

Diego Maradona has insisted that players don't pick Jorge Sampaoli's Argentina team at the 2018 World Cup.

After the 3-0 defeat to Croatia, reports claimed Sampaoli would relinquish his selection responsibilities for the crunch clash against Nigeria.

Football Icon, Maradona has denied allegations in the Argentine media that a touchline conversation between Barcelona’s Leo Messi and Sampaoli in the 2-1 victory over Nigeria.

The Argentine media claimed Sampaoli asked Messi if he wanted Manchester City Striker Sergio Aguero to come on.

Maradona, who was present at the match in St. Petersburg does not believe the players are in charge of picking the line-up.

"I don't believe that's possible. If that happened, it's better not to have a coach," he told Marca.

"I think it's outrageous, anyway. Not having a leader for certain things would not be good.

"Although you also have to rely on experienced players, but even they need the coach to tell them something, to lead the way."

Argentina face France today in a knockout stage match of the 2018 World Cup at Kazan Arena in Russia(3pm).
