The debate about the best footballer in history is still very hot, and in Argentina they have talked about it again. Humberto Maschio claims that he saw Alfredo Di Stéfano, Pelé, Diego Armando Maradona and Johan Cruyff play and he thinks that the best is Leo Messi
The season 2019-20 is stopped until the return of the European competitions, but the debates futbolísticos do not detain . In this summer there is a lot of cloth for cutting because of the consequences of the crisis of the coronavirus, to a market of signings that has encouraged in spite of his limitations and to the clubs with pending duties for the next campaign. Even so, still it speaks of the historical battle between legends.
Humberto Maschio has confessed in an interview for the daily Bugle, in which it has made some statements that go to bring tail. In Argentina is usual that Diego Armando Maradona was chosen like the best footballer of all time, but the 'bocha' does not think like this: "I saw to Gave Stéfano, to Peeled, to Maradona, to Cruyff... To all. But the best is Messi. With some of them confronted me and, repeat, the best is Leo".
To his 87 years, the ex player and trainer of Avellaneda has justified his answer, and has aimed to that all the mentioned possessed an extraordinary quality, but that the difference resides in the surroundings and in the rivals to which confronted : "I Gave Stéfano, Peeled, Maradona and Cruyff, although this a bit less, went some genii. Enormous players each one in his time, but the speed in that period is different".
The ex of Racing considers that the command of the '10' in a marked stage by the tactics and the high pressure situates him in the highest, since his competitors had the advantage to sail in a football perhaps harder but with more spaces, far of the order with which the opponents treat to detain to Leo: "it Analyses his goals. Patea Underneath of the legs of the rivals with the archer covered, this does it even more big".
The Argentinian insists in that the capacity of the captain of the FC Barcelona to measure the times and break with dribblings or passes is a worthy characteristic of praise: "I Read it is not to run a lot in the field, but when it does it, has the big virtue that it carries the ball hit to the foot. I have seen players with an incredible rapidity, but when had the ball mermaban the speed, instead he does it of a fantastic way".
It follows the fight between Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo
Many warn that the debate on Messi is what does him better, since it compares him with the myths of past, present and future. In spite of his efforts, this year has not been too good for the Barcelona, what has allowed to Cristiano Ronaldo recortar the difference in the balance of collective titles. After the last 'Scudetto' of the Juventus, the one of Madeira remains with 32, whereas the one of Rosario possesses 36.
