Maradona: Tell Ronaldo To Stop Talking Nonsense!

Cristiano Ronaldo recently stated that he is the best player in history, and Diego Maradona, who is widely considered as one of the greatest footballers, now insisted the Portuguese must stop talking nonsense.
The Portuguese gave a lengthy interview with France Football last week after collecting his fifth Ballon d’Or.
In the interview, he stated he is the best player in history of the game, but Maradona didn’t seem to impressed with Ronaldo’s self-evaluation.
“Ronaldo said he is the best ever? Tell him to stop talking nonsense,” he told AS.  
Back in Maradona’s days the Ballon d’Or was only handed out to players from Europe. Only in 1995 France Football changed their rules and George Weah became the first non-European to lift the Golden Ball. Meanwhil, FIFA’s World Footballer of the Year award – the predecessor of the current The Best Men’s Player – was only inaugurated in 1991. 
As a consequence the Argentine, similar to Brazil legend Pele, never received a Ballon d’Or for his exploits of the beautiful game.
“I would have more than Cristiano and Messi,” Maradona insisted.

  1. RIP football, we are living in an era where playmaking and assisting are held insignificant by simple fans, media included. We are forced to bow down to an individual that scores 95% of his goals from tap-ins and penalties.its sad indeed, and Injustice to the greats, including GOAT.
