Argentine football legend Maradona recently talked about the Messi- Ronaldo rivalry in an interview. According to him, his compatriot Lionel Messi does not outperform Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Messi likes me more, but that does not mean he beats Cristiano Ronaldo,” the 1986 World Cup winner said in an interview with TEC Sport.
Maradona compared the Portuguese star to former Argentine Gabriel Batistuta.“Ronaldo is very strong and amazing,” he said. “I would have liked that if he were Argentinian, he wasvery much like Batistuta, who scored goals just by touching the ball.”The former world cup winner said that-“Messi will remain immortal in thehistory of football, even if he did not qualify for the World Cup”.
“Football has given him a lot and he has also given it a lot. The World Cup will not change anything, it’s just a picture,” Maradona concluded.
