The Argentina legend has hit out at the Inter striker over his public feud with former team-mate Maxi Lopez, insisting his compatriot doesn’t “exist” to him
Diego Maradona says Mauro Icardi is “dead” to him after his off-field feud with Maxi Lopez.
The pair were team-mates together at Sampdoria but their friendship ended when Icardi entered a relationship with Lopez’s ex-wife Wanda Nara.
Lopez has refused to shake Icardi’s hand before games since the relationship became public.

And when asked by Radio Metro if the Inter striker should be named in Argentina’s Olympic squad this summer, Maradona replied: “Icardi doesn’t exist to me.
“He could be captain of the cosmos, after what happened I’m a fan of Maxi Lopez. That’s not done, brother.
“You feed him, you let him in your house and then this happens? No. Those who don’t have moral codes are dead to me.”
