Luka Modric of Croatia and Real Madrid chose Lionel Messi above late football hero Diego Maradona as his greatest player.
Maradona, according to Modric, is the best player of all time, surpassing La Albiceleste’s Lionel Messi.
Maradona and Messi are frequently recognized as the greatest players of all time.
Modric, 37, has played against Messi several times and knows a lot about the Argentina captain.
But, according to Modric, Maradona is the superior of the two.
“Maradona is the greatest in my opinion.” “Maradona and Leo are terrific, but Diego is Diego,” he remarked.
During his 21-year professional career, Maradona appeared in 490 official club games and scored 259 goals.
He also made 91 appearances for Argentina, scoring 34 goals.
Croatia advanced to the round of sixteen of the FIFA World Cup in Qatar on Thursday after a goalless draw with Belgium.
