2018 World Cup: Don’t return home if you lose to Nigeria – Maradona warns Argentina coach

Argentine football legend, Diego Maradona has issued a note of warning to Argentina’s coach, Jorge Sampaoli, ahead of his team’s game against the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the Russia 2018 world cup.

The Albeceleste got a rude shocker when they drew 1-1 against little known Iceland who are first timers at the world cup. Lionel Messi had the chance to put his team in front from the penalty spot but had his shot stopped by the Iceland goalkeeper.

While speaking to a Venezuelan television, a 1986 World Cup winner, Diego Maradona, warned Jorge Sampaoli not to return home if he carries on with his kind of performance.

“If he carries on like this, Sampaoli can’t come back to Argentina,”

“It’s a disgrace. Not having prepared for the match knowing that Iceland are all 1.90m tall. I get the feeling there’s a general anger at the heart of the team,” Maradona said.

He added that the road to qualification is difficult as he pointed out Nigeria to be a stubborn opponent that may stop them in their last qualification match.

’The Nigerians are young and very fast. Their counter-attacks and pace are a beauty to behold. I wonder how Sampaoli will do it. All I know is that he would not be welcomed back to Argentina if he does not guide Argentina to beat Croatia and Nigeria to qualify.”

Obasanjo, who recently accused Buhari of planning to jail him, also made reference to how a former military president was defeated when he tried to transit to a civilian president.

“Some people believe that those that are in position, whether they are doing well or not, they must continue to be there. But when we say they must not be there, they will want to fight back. They will hold many things to wreak havoc, but everybody must be prepared. It will not be easy to wrest powers from them. If you think it will be easy to liberate Nigeria, you are deceiving yourself. But the God...
