Maradona: Messi and Ronaldo are at the Same Level

Messi and Ronaldo

Argentine legendary footballer Diego Maradona said the debate over which player is better out of Cristinao Ronaldo and Lionel Messi is flawed as the pair are similarly matched.

These two best players in the world of football have again showcased their talismanic qualities this season with Messi scoring 53 goals in all competitions for Barcelona and Ronaldo scoring 54 goals for Real Madrid.

Maradona was quoted as saying, “It’s not the case that Messi is better than Ronaldo or Ronaldo is better than Messi. They are at the equal level.”

As a result both players are frequently compared with each other but Maradona says the argument is useless, but did point to the Portugal international’s greater threat from outside the box.

He also added “Cristiano is killer in the front of goal. You cannot let Cristinao to shoot from anywhere in the ground to the opposition half. Goalkeepers are afraid of him. You have to be honest, goalkeepers are afraid of Cristiano. They are not so afraid of Messi in those areas because he does not have the same power as Cristiano.”

He also said, “Cristiano is an incredible professional. At this current time he is right up there at Messi’s level.”
