Lionel Messi Is Better Than Diego Maradona

Barcelona midfielder Xavi believes that team-mate Lionel Messi is already superior to legendary Argentine Diego Maradona, and that players of his ability only emerge every 50 years

The story is too old to be commented.

Yup unless Messi wins the world cup he will never be remembered the same way that Maradona was

Hard to really tell. The tackles Maradona are a lot more dangerous than the current ones, not sure how Messi would have coped. For Xavi to say there's no one like him is a bit ignorant since ronaldo is in the same league.

Cristiano Ronaldo is a diffrent player to Messi Messi is like a team player while Ronaldo is on individual and a glory hunter Messi for me is the best in the world along with Xavi himself

Yes, he is, and we all know it already. And yes, he does need to win the World Cup, but that won't happen unless Argentina spawns a brilliant back four by 2014.
