Despite all the comparisons with his compatriot, Leo Messi is considered an even better player by the overwhelming majority of the world.
The reason for this is pretty simple: Maradona doesn’t have the level of success or stats that Messi has.
Diego might’ve been the one who took Argentina to two World Cup finals, but Messi won so many trophies at FC Barcelona and he already lost count.
Both players are living treasures for their countries, disliking one does a major disservice to the other and it hurts football.
This is why placing Maradona in first or second place is irrelevant, both players are just as legendary.
