Fabio Cannavaro, Guangzhou Evergrande coach expects that one day he might get a European management job and continues that Lionel Messi can not be compared to Diego Maradona.

In a talk with Sky Sports News UK the winner of the World Cup and Ballon d’Or talked about his experiences in China and questioned if he was targeting an English job.

“I hope so. I watch every game in the Premier League and I like the ambiance and culture of football in England,” said Cannavaro.

“I am in China to try to improve my system and ideas within football. I am at one of the best Asian clubs and of course, in the future, I’d like to try one experience in Europe. I want to try the challenge of European football.

“I like the Jurgen Klopp mentality but at the same time, I like the Pep Guardiola culture about football, because we always need intensity with and without the ball.

“But you need to control the game and try to win. I have my system and I hope one day you will see.”

when asked who was the best player of all time the former Napoli player and a lifelong fan had no qualms.

“I respect Messi a lot. For the new generation, he is one of the best, but Maradona is different because football was different. They kicked him a lot, but he was always in control and he was tough.

“Messi is top, but Maradona is another world. I never compare him with other players. I never saw Pele, but I watched Maradona, for seven years I saw every game.

“He’s not one of the best, he’s the best.”
