Argentine great Humberto Maschio say Barcelona star, Lionel Messi is far better than Pele, Diego Maradona.
Having watched the likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Pele, Diego Maradona and Johan Cruyff, the Argentine star stated that Messi remains the best players he has ever watched in the world.
“I saw Di Stefano, Pele, Maradona and Cruyff, but the best is Messi,” Maschio explained in an interview with Clarin.
“I saw all those greats and played against some of them, but for me Leo is the best of all.
“The speed of football at the time of those players was slowly, they were still geniuses and huge players in their own eras, but just analyse Messi’s goals, he doesn’t run much on the pitch but when he does he has the great ability to keep the ball stuck to his feet, it’s fantastic.”
