Guardiola : Messi Is No Match Compared To Diego Maradona

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has revealed that Lionel Messi isn’t quite the match of his former teammate Diego Maradona.

The likes of former Barca striker Patrick Kluivert, Messi’s team-mate Pedro and Deportivo La Coruna coach Miguel Angel Lotina all claiming Messi is a better player than Maradona in his pomp.

However Guardiola believes that it is too early to make such comparisons.

Guardiola told reporters that : “The comparison with the four best players of all time can only be made when he retires,”

“For my generation, Maradona is the greatest that we have seen and I don’t think that will change.”

However, the Barca coach believes Messi will continue to blossom.

He added that : “We have to let Leo get on with his career because he is very young and we need to give him continuity, for the good of the game,”.
