Diego Maradona ponders how his son, Lionel Messi’s son and Sergio Aguero’s son will play together for Argentina
In England, we’ve spent the last decade wondering whether Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard can play together for the national team. Perhaps the real problem was a lack of forward planning.
Take Argentina, for instance, where Diego Maradona is already sparking tactical debate about how his newborn son, Diego Fernando, might fit into a national team that would also theoretically include Thiago Messi, Lionel’s three-month old baby, and Benjamin Aguero, the four-year-old who’s Sergio’s son and Diego’s grandson.
Maradona told a Dubai radio station: “One of them will have to play as a midfielder. I think Thiago (Messi) will command the others. Benjamin (Aguero) will play as a forward and Thiago will play alongside Dieguito Fernando.”
That’s settled then. Let’s home Thiago spends a lot of time at Uncle Xavi’s house to see how it’s done!
