Diego Maradona told that in his time football was much harder and he’d have more Ballon d’Ors than Ronaldo and Messi. Besides he mentioned, Messi lacked with charisma while Ronaldo telling everybody he is the best player in the world.
“Ronaldo is the best? Tell him to stop speaking nonsense. For me the best today are Alfredo Di Stéfano, Cruyff and Messi of course. However, it can’t be Ronaldo. But I like him and his definition very much. Also, I like that when a team in need with him, Ronaldo always delivers”.
Argentina legend added few words about Messi as well: “What does Messi lack to be Maradona? It is something that can’t be bought, it’s inside of you and comes as standard. Messi is great player, but he can’t sit down 20 players, talk to them and motivate. He’d say what do you want to ask me, lads, and then answered all the questions”.
“Ballon d’Or as a trophy is difficult to give. They always give it to Ronaldo or Messi and it is quite boring. Except them, maybe Cavani deserves it, Mbape or Ibrahimović. There were more contenders before and I’d have more than Ronaldo and Messi if Ballon d’Or could be given not only to Europian players”, added Al Fujairah coach.
Maradona (on Ronaldo saying he’s the greatest ever): “Tell him to quit fucking around. Go tell him to quit fucking around. Maradona: Alfredo Di Stéfano, Cruyff, Messi are the greatest that I saw. ”
