Maradona Reacts To Not Being Invited To Messi's Wedding

Argentina legend Diego Maradona has commented on not being invited to Lionel Messi's wedding. Do you think he is upset about it?

The FC Barcelona superstar got married to his long-term partner Antonella Roccuzzo in his hometown of Rosario on Friday, and several big names were in attendance.

Maradona, however, wasn't among the star-studded guest list, but says he holds no grudges towards Messi.

"I congratulate Messi; he knows how much I love him," he told Sovetskiy Sport.

"My invitation to the wedding was lost somewhere, but my attitude towards Messi will not change because of this.

"He is a good athlete and an excellent guy."

Messi has been compared to Maradona from a young age, mainly due to the fact that, like his compatriot, he is left-footed and possesses amazing dribbling ability.

The 30-year-old played under Maradona for Argentina from 2008 until 2010.

Are you surprised Maradona wasn't invited to Messi’s big day?
