Better than Maradona yes, as for Pele I don't like comparing them because football has evolved a lot since then, but I wouldn't mind calling Messi the second best ever, much better than not even being considering on that list.

Maradona carried both club and country, his famous run against england sums up what an amazing player he was, you cant say messi is better than Maradona or pele till he wins his country something then the door to the debate can happen otherwise, messi is just an amazing club footballer and nothing else.

hard to say, maradona f&^ked up by doing drugs and that really messed him up. but even before that, he was legendary with room to improve.

its hard to also compare football from different generations. some will say its more technical now others will say it was more physical back then.

i just like to think at the end of the day, when messi and ronaldo retire, both of them will be added to the pele, maradona legendary status. and thats the way it should be. no need to find "the one" greatest footballer ever nonsense.

If it's not Messi vs Ronaldo, it's Messi or Ronaldo vs someone else. Let's just appreciate these two and that we get to see them, they are both legends already in my eyes. If I was to pick a best 11 from all generations they would both be on there.
