Oscar Ruggeri, world champion with the Albiceleste in 1986, did not hesitate to criticize the Argentine technician. “He left pissed off. No matter what feedback I have, I don’t take it out. And when you take a player like him out, don’t go looking for him, just leave him alone. You must not reach out to him, he said. This kind of guy can’t get off the pitch! If he had spoken to him (before replacing him), he (Messi) would have shook his hand. But he did not speak to him, he replaced him without consulting him. Do you think Messi would have continued to play if he had had a muscle injury? He would have asked her to replace him. Messi wants to play football, he wants to be on the pitch. “
