Argentine national team coach Diego Maradona Thursday refuted the complaints from Under-20 team coach Sergio Batista on the "lack of dialogue" between them.

"I do not know that is wrong with 'Checho (Batista)', I do not know if he has his period or what. I do not know what he wants, to kiss him on the mouth. I called him when the Under-20 team was out of the World Cup (in Egypt). Let's stop this story. What do I have to do? He should respect me as I do," Maradona said.

Maradona said that when he took over the national team "the first one" he went to look for was Batista and that "whenever I have a match where I'm playing my life, he comes out talking" with the press.

Maradona added that he "does not have any problem and if I have it is solved man to man."

Before traveling to France with the under-20 team, Batista told local press that there was "lack of dialogue" between them, and he demanded him to be more "united."
