In the mud and rain he was a boys perfect dream.

This is what I saw ,a boy balanced on a gust of wind,
A weightless ball,A perfect dream.

Maradona is the greatest of them all, won a world cup on his own and two Italian leagues with the equivalent of Wolves in England

i was in a pub once and got chatting to an old fella from blackpool(england).u sed to go to a lot of footballin his youth. asked him about stanley mathews.he was some player he siad.

then i asked him about best. same reply. then i asked who was the better of the two."no one was better than bestie, no one" was his reply.

best had it all. two feet,a great passer, dribbler, header,fearless in the tackle and a great goalscorer as well as a scorer of great goals.

over rated my hairy bollix.

As good as he was for Napoli and as much as he scored for Barca it is fair to say that Maradonna's club achievements, as good as they were, are always hyped to the max, as it was Europe and had a certain romance to it, while Pele's get ignored (google them)

Napoli never won a European Cup either under his tenure so let's not get too carried away

His crowning achievement was the amazing 1986

Pele had 1958 and 1970 so should not be under-estimated

Pele was playing savage players in those Brazil teams, especially in 1970, Maradona was carrying most of that Argentina team in 86

Yes

But my point still stands

3 World Cup wins deserves massive respect
