Batista set to sue Diego Maradona
Former Argentina coach Sergio Batista has decided to take legal action against Diego Maradona in the wake of allegations regarding his spell in charge of the national side.
Maradona recently claimed that Batista had only selected certain players for Argentina's national side because they had paid him bribes to be included in the squad. But the 48-year-old has now had enough of his predecessor's accusations.
"I have asked my lawyers to take care of this. I'm tired of all these accusations. "I can take a bit of criticism, but this is going too far to let it pass just like this," Batista was quoted as saying by Radio Rivadavia.
"We will now have to wait and see how this develops. It's in the hands of my lawyers."
