Crespo speaks on Messi, Maradona comparison

Argentina ex-international Hernán Jorge Crespo, has commented on the comparison between his country’s football icons, Diego Maradona and Lionel Messi.

Maradona and Messi are often compared but Crespo does not believe it is useful to pit the duo against each other.

Maradona inspired Argentina to glory the last time they won the World Cup in Mexico, while Messi captained the Albiceleste as they lost in the final to Germany in 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Crespo, however, feels the pair should not be compared because they have done so much in the history of football.

“It’s is useless to compare them because we need to enjoy it,” Crespo told Omnisport.

“Maradona and Messi are both Argentineans and it is incredible that they had such huge impact on the football history.

“It is obvious that the social impact Maradona had will never be seen again. It’s not about winning trophies, and it is what it is.

“Regarding Messi, his impact’s been in terms of football itself, there is a ‘before’ and ‘after-Messi’.

“So then, why should we compare them? We just need to enjoy them.”
