Messi/Ronaldo/Neymar Watch

'Messi Not The Best In History'

FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is not the best players in history, according to former Argentina boss Carlos Bilardo.

Ronaldo Equals Another Messi Milestone

The 1986 FIFA World Cup-winning manager claimed, about two months ago, that he did not consider the 28-year-old forward to be the best player to have ever graced the game, and has now expanded on his previous comments.

"(Alfredo) Di Stefano was a superman. He could begin a play in his goal and finish it in the other. Then came Pele and (Diego) Maradona," he told Ole.

"Now it's Messi, but they are different eras.

"I knew Messi would win (the Ballon d'Or), he deserved it. There's quite a difference between him and Cristiano Ronaldo.

"I put him among the best, but not in history, just of this moment.

"He's reached his ceiling, he can't win more than he has, but he has the incentive to win the World Cup."
