Luka Modric has his favorite Maradona and not Messi. Before La Albiceleste legend Lionel Messi, Croatia captain Luka Modric named Argentine legend Diego Maradona as the game’s most outstanding player. It is frequently asserted that Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain and the late Diego Maradona are the two best players in history. The pair are revered in Argentina and have fantastic careers.

The 37-year-old Modric has played against Messi for Real Madrid and knows the immense talent the former Barcelona forward possesses. Modric asserted that Maradona was superior to Pele in an interview with ESPN Argentina. For me, Maradona is the best, he declared. Maradona and Leo are Messi’s two greatest rivals, but Diego is Diego. Throughout his 21-year professional career, Maradona showed great talent by participating in 490 official club matches and tallying 259 goals.

For Argentina, he played 91 times and scored 34 goals. In 1986, the legendary Napoli team, La Albiceleste, won the FIFA World Cup. He won the Spanish Super Cup with Barcelona in 1983, and he won the Serie A championship twice with Napoli. The dribbling skills, quick feet, vision, and ingenuity of Maradona were legendary. He was a lanky footballer who was able to create magic out of nothing.

Meanwhile, Lionel Messi has elevated to the status of a sporting legend thanks to his captivating Barca career. During his 778 appearances at the Nou Camp, he scored an amazing 672 goals and provided 303 assists. The 2021 Copa America and four Champions League titles were won by the Argentina captain. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is a once-in-a-lifetime athlete who is charming, suave, and unstoppable.

Lionel Messi has been hailed as the most complete player of the modern era by Brazilian icon Pele. When asked which contemporary player he would most like to play alongside, the former Santos FC striker replied, “I suppose Leo Messi.” He is a talented player who can pass, score, assist, and dribble well. If we were a team, the opposition would have to worry about two players instead of just one. Messi is currently the most complete player.

This season, Messi has been on fire for PSG, recording 12 goals and 14 assists in 19 games across all competitions. He contributed to Argentina’s advancement to the round of 16 by scoring twice during the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
