It went back to leave his stamp in LaLiga with a goal in the Girona-FC Barcelona, but Leo Messi turned into news in England by reasons very distinct. The Barcelona footballer was protagonist this Sunday in an interview to the legendary trainer of the Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson, that left an affirmation that is giving the turn to the world.

In his conversation with the newspaper 'The Times', the Scottish was questioned on who was better, if Diego Armando Maradona or the one of Rosario, and remained without doubting it with this last. As it explains the journalist Jonathan Northcroft, the elder of his arguments coincides with an anecdote between another myth of the Liverpool, Graeme Souness, and the recently died sportive writer Hugh McIlvanney.

The deceased author defended firmly that the bonaerense was better that the '10' current of Argentina, but the ex player decanted by a contrary opinion. In spite of signalling that it had crossed until in five occasions with Diego and that even so it considered to Messi better, Souness did not attain to convince to his testarudo compatriot, but yes received the support of a historical opponent.

According to Ferguson, the explanation is very simple, and is that the career of Messi is much more prolonged that the one of Maradona. "It would put me of the side of Souness, the one who said that Messi is better player that Maradona for this reason, his path in the highest was only of some years", recalca the one who went leader of the 'network devils'.

While others demand the glory for himself same, Leo Messi generates debate with his performances, that situate him definitely between the best footballers of the history. Recently, I Peeled or the own Maradona have tried to subtract value to the merits of the '10', that already lives an intense rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo, with which is easier to compare him because they share period.

The one who affirmed that, equally, do not are worth it the comparisons was José Mourinho, that launched a similar reflection on the luso and the rosarino. "I think that it is unfair for both when somebody says that one is better that the another. I think that they are different", valued the one of Setúbal, that recalcó that his true success bases in having resisted in the peak during more than a decade, something that very few have achieved.
