Maradona Once Again Responds To CR7's 'Best In History' Claim

Diego Maradona Once Again Responds To Cristiano Ronaldo's 'Best In History' Claim

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jan 22, 2018 02:26 PM @KurtLaduma

Argentina legend Diego Maradona hit out at Cristiano Ronaldo for claiming he is the best footballer in history last month, and has done so once again.

Maradona: Tell Ronaldo To Stop Talking Nonsense!

After winning the Ballon d'Or a fifth time in December, the Portuguese insisted he was the best player in the history of the sport.

Not long after Ronaldo's triumph, Maradona claimed that the 32-year-old was "talking nonsense", and he has once again responded to the Real star's comments.

"Everybody has the right to say what they want and I don't think Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in history," he told teleSUR.

"Not at all. But I do respect the career he is having.

"He has a long way to go from this point to the point where we talk about him as the best ever."

Ronaldo has played 25 games across all competitions for Real Madrid so far this season, scoring 18 goals and assisting a further four strikes.

Do you agree with Maradona's sentiments? Let us know in the comments section below.

I agree wit D10... As much as I adore CR7 he must know that he isn't the Best in da World rite now! There is Messi who is rated as the "Greatest Of All Times". Then there's Pele & D10 Himself. I rate CR7 among the Cruyffs, the Di Stefanos the Zidanes of this World. 5 Ballon d'Ors mustn't fool CR7 by thinking His the Best... Unfortunately His not ...

@Evergreenmessi You only started watching Ronaldo 2009/2010 i see my brother...on Man United CR7 was playing a different football..it depends on the team and what the coach want from you as a player if you assist you assist..otherwise goals wins you games...

Maradona is an overrated player , he never won anything like ronaldo His claim to fame was winning a wc for argentina in which he cheated by scoring the hand of God goal and not scoring in the final. 132 goals for Napoli. .haha Ronaldo scored more than that in real madrid in 3 years..lol

Madala if Rinaldo was playing for Argentina you would be world champions unfortunately for Ronaldo his country men are not that good even so he helped them become the European champs . that's how good this guy is. Pele and you had good teamates nationally compared to Ronaldo . yes he is the best ever numbers speak. Messi is playing with best players compared to Ronaldo but still Madrid are the world champs in club football

He is dreaming. He is not the best. This must be said by us football followers. Self procaiming is a bit selfish and arrogant. Let us be ones to judge your level.

Just leave CR7 alone Mkhulu, he has achieved far better than you did so you can just sit down. He was saying what he was feeling and thinking and everybody is entitled to his or her opinion. You Mr hand of God must just stop it because you want us to believe you are the best even now which is not the case, you were the best at your time not now. Please sit down.
