iego Maradona Jr believes Paris Saint-Germain star, Lionel Messi will never reach his father’s level in football history.
He insists there are no comparisons between his father and Messi.
Both played for Barcelona and the comparison is one that has been made frequently, particularly in their home country of Argentina.
“I have a huge appreciation for him [referring to Messi], I think he is the best of his time, not the best ever,” Diego Jr told Radio del Plata.
“I think that nobody will ever reach my father.”
That doesn’t mean that he isn’t a fan of Messi, and he spoke positively of his achievements.
“I was very happy when he managed to win the Copa America with the national team, so many people shut their mouths,” he continued.
“We are difficult because we had Messi and for a lot of years we didn’t know how to enjoy him.
“My old man is above everyone else. Messi is the best in the history of humans, my old man wasn’t human playing football.”
