Was Maradona that good?Watch
When considering which footballer is a better one than the other, I consider their sportsmanship and professionalism as well as their gifted talents and honours won. Which means Maradonna pales in comparison to Pele.
pele was the best of his time and maradonna the best of his but they were fairly different times!
But the fact that he was able to lead a team with his skills at the peak literally alone to a victory, as he did in 1986 with Argentina, is the evidence that he was the best in his decade.
I am pretty bored this summer, so I decided to read up about the greatest footie players ever using a combination of sites and youtube. Not surprisingly the 2 names that pop up the most was Pele and Maradona. I'm not surpsied about the former as he scored 600+ competitive goals and won 3 world cups. However, Maradona???????? All I can find is he scored 2 famous goals against England (cheat), won one world cup and was banned twice for taking drugs...... Yet he is seen by many as the greatest footballer...
I mean I looked at his records and he hasn't scored that many goals in contrast with his appearances and he hasn't even won a champions league title. I have seen some footage of him and he looks quite good on youtube but he doesn't look as skillful as Ronaldinho yet i thought he is the most skillfull player with a left foot????
