Thought it seemed wrong, blame the whsikey. Regardless, his opinion is still shit.

I wouldn't put it like that, but he is from the same home country so I see why he would say that.

fair enough he would be biased but to say that he's noway near is ridiculous.. clearly they are on the same or similar lvl just look at the goals they score and the way they play.. if he had said no1 is near the two of them but messi is better i would agree

Maradona must be back on those drugs to say something this ridiculous.

i think maradona and pele should both keep their opinions to themselves.

il agree that maradona and pele are 2 of the worlds best. whose better? pele or maradona?

heres the thing. messi and ronaldo are the worlds best. period. who is better between them is up to personal preference in whose style of football you prefer. one thing is for sure, they both better than every other footballer on the world today and both of them will join that list of pele and maradona.

hope everyone gives it a rest now. we dont care anymore whose better.
