Former Argentina national team player, Diego Simeone, revealed the similarities between Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona. The two players are said to make winning easier to pick.

Simeone had experienced playing with Maradona in Argentina in 1994. At that time, the Albiceleste only advanced to the round of 16, stopped by Romania.


Maradona was entering the final period of his career as a footballer at that time. The same thing happened with Messi at the 2022 World Cup.

Messi became one of Argentina’s senior players in Qatar. The 35-year-old player was able to bring Team Tango to become a champion.

Simeone revealed the similarities between Maradona and Messi. The Atletico Madrid coach also expressed high praise for the player who is now defending Paris Saint-Germain.

“When I played in the World Cup with Maradona, already being a veteran, there was a feeling that it was difficult for us to lose because we had the best. And if you have the best, it’s easier to win,” Simeone said as reported by ESPN.

“Wherever Messi will always be decisive, be it in the national team, in his current team or at Barcelona. With a player with character like Leo, there is a better chance of winning,” he added.

With the World Cup achieved in Qatar, Messi is said to have completed his trophy collection. Now, he has been named GOAT ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo.
