Updated: May 14, 2015


Argentine legend Diego Maradona, who played for Barcelona, as well as the likes of Boca Juniors, and  Napoli  during a glittering career says he scored more entertaining and beautiful goals than his country man Lionel Messi does.

The Argentine legend says that while his compatriot Lionel Messi is more prolific and stylish, he was a more stylished and spectacular finisher than his countryman.

And while he believes Messi is the best player in the modern game, rating him above Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, he says that Messi is still developing as a footballer and would one day develop his own style better.  Check this : Top 20 Richest Footballers in the World 2015

Diego Maradona says Lionel Messi is currently the best player in the world, but insists his own goals were “more beautiful” than those of the Barcelona star.

“I think the goals come with the style. I think Messi is finding his own style, but he is killing it with the goals. This makes you accelerate the pace. Most likely, he will find his style very soon,” Maradona told CNN.

“I think that I had my own style from the very beginning, so that is the point at which I could be better than Messi. But Messi has scored over 300 goals, whereas I think I scored a little over 200 in my whole career. read :  Jose Mourinho names his all time best xl ever

“But the thing is, my goals were more beautiful!” if you compare the goals i scored during my playing days to that of Lionel Messi’s goals you would see that mine was more stylish and beautiful.”

Messi scored two goals in Barcelona’s 5-3 aggregate victory over Bayern Munich, which saw them book a spot in the Champions League final against Juventus.

He has also scored 40 goals in la liga this season and 10 goals in the UEFA champions league.
