Now Messi's cousin Maxi Biancucchi has hit back by saying Maradona was 'ignorant' over his comments.

The 34-year-old, a professional footballer with second division Paraguayan side Rubio Nu who is nicknamed El Primo de Messi - Spanish for Messi's cousin - raged: 'It's ignorant to discredit Leo.

'It's sad to see how someone who boasts of being a leader can talk so badly about a player who's currently the best we've got and will probably be so for a long time yet.

And he's done it at a time when he should be helping to rebuild if he loves the national side as he says he does.'
