Always it has argued on the historical figure of the world-wide football. Definitely, the name of Diego Armando Maradona was present, and still after his demise, seems that the world finished him yielding the throne to the mythical '10' Argentinian.

However, the followers of the world-wide football do not seem to think the same. The recognised encuestadora 'Eurosport', from his web page, carried out a survey where the participants left to a side his feelings, with the end to centre exclusively in the sportive merits of the players.

Leo Messi arrasó in the numbers launched by the survey, hoarding 46% of the votes, 21% more than Maradona, the one who retained 23% of the support of the fans. Edson Arantes Do Nascimiento, better known as "I Peeled", has remained with the third place of the podium with 11%.

The survey gave a hit on the table in the fight on the eternal comparison between "The Flea" and Cristiano Ronaldo, the one who for many is considered like the best player, above the Argentinian star. With so only 6% of the votes, Cristiano occupied the fourth position in the dispute of 'Eurosport.es', where the users had the authority to choose the maximum bastions in the history of the world-wide football.

Alfredo Gave Stéfano also appeared in the list with a six percent. Ronaldo Nazário (4 percent), Johan Cruyff (3 percent) and Beckenbauer (1 percent), were recognised equally by the users of 'Eurosport'.

Messi is historical

The fans have based his criterion in the talent of Leo Messi, the titles harvested and records reached from his arrival to the FC Barcelona 16 years ago, the club that saw it grow like footballer and to the that the Argentinian star has given him everything. The fact of not attaining, until the moment, any title with his national selection, remains in a second plane for the followers in front of the extraordinary that it is like footballer.

They say that Messi is not of this planet. He has commissioned to feed this maximum with what does in field. A distinct player, like the there is not another, with his vision and capacities. Lionel, game to game, breaks diagrams and rewrites the history without mattering the casaca that dress, and the fans are witnesses of the milestone of the '10' of the Barça.
