London, Jun 17 : The verbal dual between two best footballers in the world shows no signs of an early end, with Argentinean legend Diego Maradona asking Brazilian great Pele to "go back to the museum".
In recent times, Maradona has made a number of shocking outbursts since taking charge as coach of Argentina.
Both Pele and UEFA boss Michel Platini have questioned his suitability, with the Brazilian idol suggesting he only took the job for the money.
"Pele should go back to the museum and stay there. As for Platini, he is French and we all know what French people are like. It is something if they even say hello and goodbye," the Sun quoted Maradon, as saying. .
Meanwhile Maradona said that South Koreans should get on the first plane back to Seoul if they are only thinking about stopping Argentina playing, and targeting their ace, Lionel Messi.
"We are here to play football and anyone who doesn't want to do that should go home. They are quick as lightning and strong at set-pieces. I hope the ref uses the full sanctions at his disposal if the Koreans go for Messi. Lionel should not have to fear their tactics." (ANI)
