Leo Messi has been definitely the best player of his generation by quality, titles and dimension. The Argentinian has changed the history of the FC Barcelona and has done to the team barcelonista even more big of what was before his arrival. The one of Rosario has marked a before and an afterwards in the club, but also in the world of the football and in the history of the sport. Many consider him the best of always, although others follow putting peros when it does this affirmation.

For a lot of people Diego Armando Maradona keeps on being the biggest of all time. In Argentina, in fact, this current of opinion is a fact by the fault of titles of Messi with his selection. The '10' of the Barça has not won any Glass America neither any World-wide with Argentina and there are a lot of Argentinians that do not forgive this. 'The Lint' himself conquered a Glass of the World being decisive and this marks the difference for some.

But no all think like this, as it has showed Hristo Stoichkov with his last statements. The Bulgarian, contemporary of Maradona, did not arrive to coincide with him in the Barça, but yes lived his career, since it was alone 6 lower years that he. To Messi only has seen him by the television and from the terracing, but does not have any doubt that what has attained Leo is something that neither the ex of the Napoli neither anybody has achieved never.

"Messi is a crack and a myth and is difficult to compare it. There is not any that have won what won he. Six Balloons of Gold, five Boots of Gold, better player of the World-wide 2014...", it began, enumerating the attainments of the culé. Besides, it signalled that in Argentina he has been of the few in attaining be the best of a World-wide, something to take into account. "The Argentinians have few players that went the best of a World-wide. Kempes In the 78, Diego in the 86 and Lionel in 2014", stood out for 'Irradiate Mitre'.

Although it did not say it directly, the one of Plovdiv left clear that anybody will achieve to win so many things like the captain of the Barça. "Anybody goes to win what won Messi", affirmed. Also it launched a dart to the Argentinians that compare continuously to the blaugrana with Maradona, something absurd under the point of view of Stoichkov. "You the Argentinians always have the discussion 'he or another', but is not just to compare periods", aimed.

Messi has been much more lethal and regulate that Maradona

The reality is that with the numbers in the hand there is not and never there will be colour between Messi and Maradona. The rosarino has won it everything to level of clubs, has marked a lot of more goals, has delivered a lot of more assistances and has been much more regulate. This regularity is what marks the difference in a sport, since he carries in the peak all his career. 'The Lint', by the contrary, marked the difference during quite a lot less seasons, in spite of winning a World-wide.
