Maradona: Spain is getting bored of it’s own tactics, Argentina will win the World Cup

The always opinionated Argentine footballing legend, Diego Armando Maradona feels that Spain have played their way out of winning the 2014 World Cup and left the top spot open for Argentina to claim the throne.


In a  recent interview, Maradona backed his country to win the 2014 World Cup, after failing to lead them to the winner’s circle as manager in 2010, and breaks down why he believes they will be victorious in Brazil.

“1986 will be repeated and it will be in Brazil. Argentina will be champions of the world, but they will have to do battle against the ‘morochos (Brazil)’, who are very tough.

“Germany and the Netherlands are very good, Italy not so much and Spain is getting bored of its own tactics. It goes forward and forward, but cannot convert.”

Maradona went on to reflect on his aforementioned managerial stint in 2010 and defended his decisions before losing 4-0 to Germany in the quarter-finals.

“I have no regrets about the team I put in. That was it. It wasn’t the moment to put in Verón or Pastore. I was the one with the group and I knew that they were the best.”

Maradona concluded by praising his compatriot, Barcelona’s Leo Messi, despite picking Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo to win the 2013 Ballon d’Or.

“We Argentines don’t know how to enjoy what we have, not only in football but in life in general. There’s always something to comment on or a comparison to make. Leave Messi alone, stop comparing him.”
