Maradona: I Wish CR7 Was Argentine

Diego Maradona: I Wish Cristiano Ronaldo Was Argentine

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jun 20, 2017 05:00 PM @KurtLaduma

Footballing legend Diego Maradona has admitted that he wishes superstar Cristiano Ronaldo played for Argentina.

Reports: Why Barca Want Ronaldo To Stay At Real

The 1986 FIFA World Cup hero has often praised Ronaldo, but after revealing he would have loved the Portuguese to have been from Argentina, he insisted he still prefers his countryman Lionel Messi.

"Cristiano is an animal," Maradona told TyC Sports.

"I wish he was Argentine.

"But I still prefer Messi. He is enjoying playing football and goes by opponents with ease."

Many supporters and pundits have claimed Messi can only be considered as one of the best ever if he wins a major trophy with Argentina, but Maradona feels this is unreasonable as the 29-year-old cannot win the World Cup by himself.

"Leo cannot deliver the World Cup on his own," he added.

"Even if he does not win a World Cup, we will still remember him."

There is only one player who is a threat to Maradona's Argentinian legacy and it's not Cristiano. Dani Alves recently said something about the Messi vs Maradona debate which Maradona's daughter never liked. So calling Cristiano an "animal" and claim you wish he was Argentinian while admitting you still prefer Messi....I don't think it settles the score for Maradona against Dani Alves even though it was clearly his attempt here.
