    Its amazing I have not heard a single contemporary player of Maradona criticizing him - they always thought fondly of him, almost as a God..

    Diego Maradona was at his peak for 3-4 seasons, doing amazing things like winning world cup '86 or Serie A with Napoli...Messi , on the other hand, is the Maradona of '86 every moment, almost every match that he has played, for the last 14 years...absolutely incredible ... and considering Barcelona to be such a big club in Europe, where all the great footballers of the world dreams to play, Messi has remained their central force for more than a decade now..that is no less a feat than winning a league for Napoli..International trophy for Argentina??To summarize in brief, Messi pulled out almost every bit of energy from every tissue in his body to win the WC , but the team around him let him down in every possible way ... also, he does not have the champions luck in WC, which Maradona had in '86 ...that hand of God moment..But , fortunately, Messi being a freak of nature, at this moment is still going great guns, (just finished off watching Barcelona vs Liverpool , champions league 2019, whatta free kick ), i still believe he'll throw a last attempt for Qatar WC 2022...The most important yardstick for evaluating a sports man is consistency, and there's no one beating Messi there

    u cant compare messi and Maradona, NOO. Messi is the in this generation and Diego was the best in his generation. The football game today is more difficult to play. There are lot of tactics and philosophies, there are more rules to the game than ever before. there is goal line technology, VAR and etc. we could compare messi and maradona if things did not change. yes boots are lighter now and the ball is no longer heavy, but maradona could have been the god of hand if VAR existed. LOL

    MESSI IS, WAS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE GREATEST PLAYER OF ALL TIME, I''M WRITING THIS IN CAPITALS SO THAT THE UNEDUCATED CAN READ IT EASIER, AND BEFORE THE USUAL FEEBLE ARGUMENTS COME ON HERE LIKE "WELL MESSI NEVER ONE A WORLD CUP" ETC, WHAT HAS THAT GOT TO DO WITH BEING THE GREATEST PLAYER OF ALL TIME?? GREATEST PLAYER, NOT MOST SUCCESSFUL PLAYER. YOU'RE A SUCCESS IF YOU WIN LOADS OF TROPHIES, YOU'RE THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME BECAUSE YOU'RE THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME!! GEORGE BEST NEVER WON A WORLD CUP, DOES THAT MAKE OLIVIER GIROUD A BETTER PLAYER THAN GEORGE BEST?? OFF COURSE IT DOESN'T, SO THAT'S THAT ARGUMENT GONE OUT THE WINDOW. OTHERS ARE ON HERE SAYING OH YOU YOUNG PEOPLE NEVER SAW MARADONA IN HIS PRIME, I'M SIXTY EIGHT YEARS OLD AND HAVE SEEN ALL THE GREATS IN THEIR PRIME LIKE MARADONNA, KEMPES ETC AND I CAN HONESTLY SAY I HAVE NEVER SEEN A BETTER PLAYER THAT MESSI EVER11111111111111111111111111111111

    Maradona did it on the world stage winning the world cup with his beloved Argentina and helping them to win Mexico world cup 1986 plus he lead his country to Italia 90 world cup final also. this time around the runner up on that occasion. plus at Napoli in Italy he helped them to win 2 Serie A Titles the scudetto. with poor players around meaning he carried them on his back single handed.in that period in the late 80s .Lionel Messi is the greatest club player of all time. for his goals his scores he way he reads the game and runs at imperious weak opponents who are not able to play in his league.

    There are alot of messitards in here.
    Maradona is greater what he did was amazing he did the impossible play. Picking a team that was almost regulated to second divisions and made them European champs. Is a fantastic achievement. Messi cant adapt to other style beside barcelona. That's his favorite game.
    Plus rules were differemt back them. You could imagine what would Maradona could do if he plays under the current rules.

    There are no players in the world that have ever been as great as CR7 and Messi.

    People talk about Pele and Maradona - they were great.
    However, if you were lucky enough to see CR7 or Messi - you have seen the best.

    People always want to hang onto older names. It makes them feel that its good to be older.
    I have seen them all - Messi and CR7 are on a different level.

      @My Lord, I completely agree with you You are obviously a playstation kid, you are not more than 14 years old, you have not watched enough football to make such a statement. Groww up, learn, watch more football, turn off the playstation, and in 20 years, when you are my age, we discuss if CR7 is on the top 30.

    • My Lord, I completely agree with you

    Messi is better than Maradona. Today's game is better than it was back in the day. Maradona wouldnt be as good now. I remember him in 90 and 94 world cups. He was shite both times.

    This must be just about Argentinian players competing against each other because THE GOAT is Ronaldo and it's a FACT that the entire world knows about. Some have a very hard time to accept this fact but a FACT is a FACT.
    But Messi and Maradonna are very good 2nd and 3rd players. You can choose which one you like most to be 2nd.
