Lionel Messi will never be better than Diego Maradona, Mario Kempes has said. He recently revealed that the free agent will never be able to achieve that even if he wins four World Cups in a row.
According to him, the fact is that with all of Messi’s achievements, he will always be in the shadow of his late compatriot for the rest of his life.
He added that it is simply very difficult for any player to overshadow Diego Maradona‘s influence in the country.
His words, “For Messi, the misfortune is that he was the replacement for Diego Maradona,”
“And it is very difficult to overshadow Diego, with the idolatry that he has received around the world.”
“If [Messi] wants to be better than Maradona, he is not going to achieve it even if he wins four World Cups in a row.”
“He still hasn’t won the World Cup. No matter how many [titles he] wins or what he wins, it can never be compared to what Diego did.”
