The son of the legendary Argentine striker Diego Maradona, Diego Maradona Jr. does not consider Lionel Messi equal to his father in terms of level.
"Messi and father are compared by those who do not watch and do not understand football. We are talking about different planets," Radio Marte quoted him as saying.
At the same time, Maradona Jr. noted that he did not want to put an end to Messi after the defeat in the World Cup match from Saudi Arabia (1: 2), although this loss devastated him.
"Losing to Saudi Arabia is crazy," he said.
