coach, Angel Cappa, has weighed into the debate about Lionel Messi, while also insisting that Barcelona would be mid-table without his magic this season.
Diego Maradona hit the headlines last week when he claimed that the country should move on from the Blaugrana forward because he lacks leadership qualities.
Cappa did acknowledge that he sees where the 1986 World Cup winner is coming from, although also had a lot of praise for the striker’s club displays this year.
Without him, Barcelona would be 10th, he has saved them in many games this season.”
So far in LaLiga Santander in 2018/19, he has participated in 10 of the 19 that the Catalans have scored with six goals and four assists.
Cappa also believes that Argentinashould not hand the coaching role to Lionel Scaloni permanently after he was given the reins on an interim basis.
“He doesn’t have enough experience to continue coaching the national team,” he added.
“For me, I like [Mauricio] Pochettino.”
