Scaloni and the eternal comparison with Maradona: “Messi is the best”

The coach of the Argentine national team, lionel scalonisaid today that Lionel Messi is better than Diego Maradona although if he can, he stays with the “two”.

“For me Messi is the best, but if I can choose, both of them. I think it’s important to realize what a player like him needs. In the first months with the National Team we tried to play a little faster and in a slightly more direct, and we realized that he was not comfortable, nor was his teammates.”affirmed the DT the Uruguayan newspaper El País.

“Everyone is going to want to beat us for being world champions,” said Scaloni.

On the other hand, the DT of the “albiceleste” recalled that the defeat against Saudi Arabia in the debut in the World Cup in Qatar was something “positive” because it gave them a “new perspective”.

“We were risking everything and perhaps that forced us to change our approach… The team and the squad as a whole showed that they were prepared for anything,” he explained.

The full note will be published tomorrow in El País on its website and in the paper newspaper, as announced by the Spanish media. In this advance, Scaloni was happy with a new recognition and said that for 30 seconds he sat down to look at “everyone” on the field after being champions.

“I felt that I had to sit on the substitute bench, watch everything that was going on there and for me it was a moment of enjoyment. I stayed there for 30 seconds and saw the players and all my people celebrating. I still get emotional, I think it’s a unique moment. It’s something priceless,” explained the DT born in the Santa Fe town of Pujato.

“Everything that happened here with the bus, seeing people almost at the pace of a very slow man, and seeing people crying and saying things to you. That happened every 10 seconds, there were millions of people in the streets and there really we realized the magnitude of having won. It was an incredible two or three hours.”he recalled about the celebrations upon the return from Qatar.


Argentina will play in Asia on the next FIFA date: it will face the Australian team on June 15 in the Chinese city of Beijing; and on the 19th in Jakarta against local Indonesia.

Against the Australian team, the match will begin at 9 in Argentina, with transmission by TyC Sports; and the second still does not have official confirmation on the schedule.
