Maradona travels to Barcelona

Maradona travels to Barcelona

New Argentina coach Diego Maradona is in Barcelona to see Lionel Messi as part of his European tour to meet with players who will make up his national squad.
Maradona was expected to see Messi _ and possibly injured defender Gabriel Milito _ after Barcelona training on Thursday afternoon.
Messi is not available for Maradona's first match in charge _ a friendly against Scotland on Nov. 19 _ due to a deal between the Argentine football federation and Barcelona.
Maradona had hoped to meet with Barcelona president Joan Laporta but he is in Brussels, Belgium, and doesn't return until late Thursday.
Maradona dined with several of Real Madrid's Argentine players following a 2-0 Champions League defeat to Juventus on Wednesday. Maradona will travel to England and Germany next.
