1978 World Cup winner with Argentina, Mario Kempes
“For Messi, the misfortune is that he was the replacement for Diego Maradona,” Kempes told ESPN Mexico.
“And it is very difficult to overshadow Diego, with the idolatry that he has received around the world
“If [Messi] wants to be better than Maradona, he is not going to achieve it even if he wins four World Cups in a row.
“He still hasn’t won the World Cup. No matter how many [titles he] wins or what he wins
it can never be compared to what Diego did.”
