Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni has fired back at Paris Saint-Germain star Angel di Maria, who was upset at being not being called up to the national side.
The PSG attacker was not pleased to find out that he was snubbed for next month's World Cup qualifiers despite his form at club level.
Di Maria, who has over 100 national team appearances, continues to perform at a high level for PSG but Scaloni insists the national team has peformed fine without the winger in the past six games.
"I am not worried that he is angry.
"I appreciate it and value it, but after the Copa America, in those six games, the team worked without him.
"The team works without Di Maria and I am not going to use him.
"He is not part of this call, but he is not outside the national team."
