And 25 years after the last World Championship of Diego Armando Maradona, who came out to break the silence, was Abel Balbo. The former leader made explosive statements about Fox Sports Radio.
"It was the biggest disappointment in my life; for me, we were champions, a great team, the group was united, strong, with players at a very high level, but Maradona" did not kill ", Balbo started.
Then, without tongue hairs, he pointed to Julio Hummerto Grodona and shot: "We felt betrayed; at that time, not us were defending us and not defending him in Maradona." Former Newell and Boca player deepened his harsh criticism against former AFA president. "The champion of the World Cup could not be Argentina, I have the feeling that Maradona handed him over."
"If your leader, team captain, Argentina's historical idol, you do not defend the World Cup in such a serious situation and with a team that plays well and can win the World Cup, then you realize that something is not going," he added .
Finally, Balbo's very uprooted prisoner said, "After Maradona changed everything, the group was different, everything was lost." Argentina was eliminated in the second round of the World Cup.
