Argentina are currently putting heads together to look for a way out after Messi was handed a four-game ban.
Messi has already missed one of such banned games and they are confident they can get it reduced. But one man at the of accusations is Diego Maradona as reports say he supported it.
However, the Argentine World Cup winner has denied his Involvement in getting Messi banned.
He told La Oral Deportiva: “The ban was surprising to e because Messi is a cautious person. He doesn’t complain about anything and trains like a teddy bear with his teammates and everyone.
“The punishment of Leo Messi is exaggerated. In American football, they talk with their hands in front of their mouths. What happened with Messi and the linesman was seen.”

On his involvement in the decision, he added: “It hurts me when they say that I had an influence in Messi getting suspended for four matches. I swear to God I knew nothing”
“The ban started with CONMEBOL. I investigated and asked about it, but I didn’t influence anything.”
“The absence of Messi is decisive.
“There is one Argentina with him and another without him.”
The former national team boss also hinted he was going to fight against the ban: “I will speak with Infantino, as I think it’s terrible. Four matches is an awful lot.”
“I’ve called Messi a lot of times to talk but never got a response back.“
