Maradona: Tell Ronaldo To Stop Talking Nonsense!

Diego Maradona: Tell Cristiano Ronaldo To Stop Talking Nonsense!

By David Kappel - Dec 15, 2017 09:05 PM @kappilinho

Cristiano Ronaldo recently stated that he is the best player in history, and Diego Maradona, who is widely considered as one of the greatest footballers, now insisted the Portuguese must stop talking nonsense.

The Portuguese gave a lengthy interview with France Football last week after collecting his fifth Ballon d’Or.

In the interview, he stated he is the best player in history of the game, but Maradona didn’t seem to impressed with Ronaldo’s self-evaluation.

“Ronaldo said he is the best ever? Tell him to stop talking nonsense,” he told AS.  

Back in Maradona’s days the Ballon d’Or was only handed out to players from Europe. Only in 1995 France Football changed their rules and George Weah became the first non-European to lift the Golden Ball. Meanwhil, FIFA’s World Footballer of the Year award – the predecessor of the current The Best Men’s Player – was only inaugurated in 1991. 

As a consequence the Argentine, similar to Brazil legend Pele, never received a Ballon d’Or for his exploits of the beautiful game.

“I would have more than Cristiano and Messi,” Maradona insisted.

The 57-year-old guided Argentina to the 1986 FIFA World Cup, the last the Albiceleste lifted after losing the 1990 and 2014 finals.

Do you agree that Maradona would have lifted more Ballon d’Ors than Messi and Ronaldo? Have your say in the comments section below.

As fanatical CR7 fans rightly pointed out, he(CR) is entitled to proclaim himself the best in history................Then surely so is the great Mara ? And what about our Messi? The more the merrier?
