Diego Maradona 'much better' than Lionel Messi who 'only has one skill' - Pele

It's the usual suspects leading the world's best forwards in 2018, but did Lionel Messi really have a better 2018 than Cristiano Ronaldo?
Real Madrid's Luka Modric insists that although Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are exceptional talents, his Ballon d'Or win was for those players like Xavi who missed out because of their domination of the trophy.
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno says Messi is too good to not deem Barcelona's trio of strikers the fiercest in all of Europe.

ROSARIO, Argentina -- The critics sharpened their knives when Diego Maradona was announced as manager of Ascenso MX side Dorados de Sinaloa on Sept. 6. If a poll had been taken at the time of his appointment it would surely have produced a negative projection of the Argentine legend's chances of success, especially given his vulgar behaviour at the 2018 World Cup in Russia just a few months earlier. 

But for Hernan Amez, watching on from Rosario, there was never any doubt that Maradona...
