Messi vs Maradona: Lionel Scaloni picks greatest footballer in history
Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni has named Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi the greatest footballer in history, ahead of the late football icon Diego Maradona.
Messi recently led Argentina to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar last December, while Maradona led Argentina to win the 1986 World Cup.
For years, the Messi versus Maradona debate had a clear winner in Argentina, but now, following the former Barcelona captain’s heroics, the scenery has seemingly shifted.
Speaking on Cope’s “El Partidazo” program, Scaloni was asked to pick between Messi and Maradona.
The Argentina manager responded: “For me, Messi is the best in history." Maradona was great. "But with Leo, I have something special.”
Messi has appeared in 44 games under Scaloni, scoring 32 goals.
