It is suitable to collate Leo Messi with Diego Maradona, according to Roberto Ayala. The former Argentinian player and current assistant talked about the couple.
The Argentine defender is presently under the coaching of Lionel Scaloni. He has also played for the national team.
Ayala told Fox Sports, “I was playing with both of them, and I was taking my first steps with Diego. They are two giants in football and Messi will be remembered when he retires.”
“I don’t know if it’s going to be like Diego, that’s not important. And they’re different.
“Diego was pure art in all his mannerisms, Messi a Speedy Gonzalez carrying the ball from his foot two centimeters.”
