Maradona puts lid on Riquelme recall campaign

Maradona: It's a closed subject. (SUPPLIED)

Diego Maradona has put an end to a growing campaign for the return to the Argentina team of playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme.

"It's a closed subject," the Argentina coach told reporters. "I called Riquelme up [last March] and he didn't come. I don't have to bow to anyone and I'll choose the player who is in best form."
