This Wednesday, the world of the football was struck with a hard news: the death of Diego Armando Maradona​ to the 60 years owing to an unemployed cardiorrespiratoria. The 'Lint' marked a before and an afterwards in the history of this sport with the big impact that generated in the years 80, consecrating as the best player of the world and making history so much in clubs like the FC Barcelona or the Naples as in the selection of Argentina.

A lot afterwards, around the middle of the past decade, however, began to stand out another Argentinian youngster that played also in the FC Barcelona, club of the that Diego Armando Maradona had formed part during two seasons. It called Leo Messi and, stair to stair, was purchasing increasingly importance in a team that lived the sunset of other cracks of world-wide size like Ronaldinho Gaucho or Deco.

They happened the seasons and Leo Messi converted every time in a better footballer, until the point to be considered the best player of the world and, for many, the best of the history by in front even of Diego Armando Maradona. This circumstance would have caused contradictory feelings in the 'Lint', that although it enjoyed with the football of his successor, also saw loomed his 'throne' in Argentina.

"When Messi began to play, Diego loved to Messi, as all that that sees to a player with this category futbolística", began saying the tertuliano.

But the 'Wolf' Carrasco affirmed also that there was a part of Diego Armando Maradona to which did not do him so much grace that Leo Messi had a so high level: "But Maradona had jealousies of Messi.

To level of collective attainments, the list of winners of Leo Messi is much wider that the one of Diego Armando Maradona to level of clubs although, to level of international selections, weighs a lot the World-wide that won the 'Lint'. Independently of what achieve the Barcelona in what it remains him of career, the debate always will be opened.
