Ex-Napoli striker Diego Maradona talked to El Pibe de Oro and criticised Mauro Icardi, insisting Gonzalo Higuain is “worth 10 times more” than the Inter striker.

“Today’s Argentina no longer strikes fear into the opponents. Apart from Messi, people have lost respect for the Albiceleste shirt.”

“Without a shadow of a doubt, Carlos Tevez deserves to go to the World Cup. There’s nobody better out there. We are scraping the bottom of the barrel to find a suitable Number 9.”

“Higuain deserves an opportunity, as he is worth 10 times more than that shameful Icardi.”
