Maradona Fires Back At 'Idiot' Alves
Diego Maradona Fires Back At 'Idiot' Dani Alves
Footballing legend Diego Maradona has responded to Dani Alves's recent comments that the Argentine could not be compared to Lionel Messi.
The Brazilian recently said the 1986 FIFA World Cup winner's infamous "Hand of God" goal meant he cannot be an example to kids around the world, or be compared to his countryman Messi.
Maradona has since hit back at the Juventus defender, criticising the former FC Barcelona man as a footballer.
"Dani Alves is an idiot," he told TyC Sports.
"Cafu and Maicon were real fullbacks, he (Alves) makes 28 crosses per game and only connects with four, poor thing.
"He speaks because he plays in a position on the pitch where football is not played.
"They touch the ball three times and make eight fouls per game.
"If we're going to keep talking about this idiot, it's better that I go."
Despite Maradona's claims, Alves recently became the third most decorated footballer in the world after winning his 33rd career trophy at Juventus.
