Died on November 25, 2020, Diego Maradona is considered the best football player in history and what he did for Argentina is highly respected in the South American country.
A big fan of Lionel Messi and also of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Argentine legend spoke at length about the duel between the two players. A duel that crosses generations. And for him, the Portuguese star has a strength that the seven-time Ballon d’Or does not have.
“Goalkeepers are afraid of Cristiano Ronaldo. But Messi, not so much, because he doesn’t have the strength and potential of Ronaldo,” the former Napoli once said of the two players.
A beautiful tribute for the former Manchester United, who had to work twice as hard to earn records and distinctions that will inevitably remain in the annals of world football.
