Messi, 31, last featured for Argentina at the World Cup, skipping friendlies in September and being ruled out of upcoming matches against Iraq and Brazil.
Maradona, a 1986 World Cup winner, feels Messi – Argentina’s all-time leading goalscorer – should retire from international duty.
Asked what he would say to Messi, Maradona told Clarin: “Don’t come anymore.”

He added: “The under-15s lose and it’s Messi’s fault. The fixture in Argentina puts Racing against Boca and Messi is to blame. It’s always his fault.
Messi and Argentina, who scraped into Russia 2018, were eliminated in the last 16 by eventual champions France.
The star’s international future has been in doubt since the showpiece tournament, with Messi having previously retired in 2016.
