The son of Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona surprised the media in his country with a provocative statement against the now prominent Argentine soccer star, and Barcelona captain Lionel Messi. Diego Maradona Junior said in an exclusive interview with the Catalan newspaper “Sport”, which is close to Barcelona, that Lionel Messi is “a phenomenon in football.”
But Argentine media saw that his conversation after that about the comparison between his father and Messi was a provocation to the Barcelona star, as he said in his response to his “Sport” question about the best between them. For my father, a comparison is not possible, because “aliens” should not be compared to “humans.” He pointed out that Messi, no matter how brilliant, he will remain a player at a level lower than his father achieved in the history of football.
He continued: I am sorry for Messi, because he can be the best “human” player, but it is impossible for him to reach the level of my father.
