Messi saw Maradona as an idol and during one warmup at the 2010 World Cup, they enjoyed a little exchange.


He attempts to pass the ball to a teammate for a simple give-and-go, but Maradona cheekily pokes it away and the duo engage in a mini-drill.

Argentina reached the quarter-finals of that year's tournament before being eliminated by Germany.

Lionel Messi Pays Tribute To 'Eternal' Diego Maradona After His Death

published at5 months ago

"I started walking to where Diego was, and at the same moment I see Messi place the ball down. He takes three shots and misses all three and turned to us with a look of clear frustration.

"He turns towards the dressing room and I shout 'no' before hugging him and telling him that the best player in the world can't leave a training session like that. Diego arrives and they talk to each other, the world seems to stop at that moment.

"He places the ball in the same place and then gives some very paternal words. He told him not to take his foot off the ball so quickly when he takes a free kick."

A teenage Messi linked up with a 45-year-old Maradona for an Argentina All Stars team in a charity match.

The likes of Sergio Aguero, Diego Simeone and Juan Sebastian Veron were also involved but it's the link up play between the two incredible 'number 10s' that really catches the attention.
