Maradona was also critical of the world football governing body, Fifa, for not coming down heavy on the French midfielder, whose tackle he said was worse than Luis Suarez incident with Giorgio Chiellini.

"Where’s the ball? It’s criminal,” said the 1986 World Cup winner.

"Now I want to see the reaction of Fifa. The reaction of Pele and of Franz Beckenbauer. You must have a lot of nerve to not see that this is worse than Suarez."

Onazi whose leg has long been put in a cast will now spend almost a month on the side-lines.
