The former Argentina player and current assistant spoke about the pair
Roberto Ayala doesn’t think Leo Messi and Diego Maradona should be compared.
The Argentine defender played with both for the national team and is currently a coach in the country’s set up, under Lionel Scaloni.
“I played with both of them, with Diego I was taking my first steps. They are two footballing giants, and when he retires, Messi will be remembered,” Ayala told Fox Sports.
“I don't know if it’ll be like Diego, it doesn't matter. They are different.
“Diego was pure art in all his mannerisms, Messi a Speedy Gonzalez who carries the ball two centimetres from his foot.”
