“Why I Didn’t Attend Messi’s Wedding” – Maradona Reveals
Football legend, Diego Maradona has revealed he failed to attend Lionel Mssi’s wedding because his invitation must have been “lost somewhere”.
Maradona’s name was left off the guest list for Friday’s star-studded event in Rosario.
His legendary countryman insists that he holds no grudge and still considers Messi to be a top professional and man.
Maradona, who is currently in Russia for the Confederations Cup, told Sovetskiy Sport: “I congratulate Messi; he knows how much I love him.
“My invitation to the wedding was lost somewhere, but my attitude towards Messi will not change because of this. He is a good athlete and an excellent guy.”
Messi’s international team-mates Angel Di Maria, Sergio Romero and Maxi Rodrgiuez were in attendance.
As were Messi’s Barca team-mates of past and present Neymar, Luis Suarez, Javier Mascherano, Xavi, Samuel Eto’o and Carles Puyol.
