The achievements of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have indeed looked a little dim in recent years. Even so, Argentine legend Diego Maradona does not believe there are other players who can match the achievements of the two players.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are two individuals who seem to have dominated football for the past 10 years.
The two of them have won countless titles, set extraordinary records and won dozens of individual awards.
In fact, Cristiano Ronaldo has won 5 Ballon d’Or titles, while Messi has collected 6 of them.
Meanwhile, Diego Maradona himself is still often referred to as one of the greatest footballers in history. In the past, the name of the Argentine legend was often juxtaposed with the great Brazilian legend, Pele.
Even though the two of them are in different eras, they did excel when they were still working. Pele with three world titles with Brazil, while Maradona had led Argentina to the world title in 1984.
But for now, in the present, Maradona can only admit that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the best. In fact, no other player can match the achievements of both of them, even if only half of that achievement.
“Messi and Cristiano, Cristiano and Messi. For me, both of them are superior to the other, ”
“I don’t see any players approaching them. No one [will] accomplish half of what they do. ” Maradona said in an interview with France Football.
Unfortunately, both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi appear to be nearing the end of their careers. Cristiano Ronaldo is 35 years old and currently defending Juventus. While Messi, who is 33 years old, still wears a Barcelona costume.
Even though they are no longer young, these two players can still compete at the top level. Their performance still often attracts admiration from many parties.
In fact, it seems that almost all football fans agree that these two players are still the best until now.
