They say history repeats its self and i never believed in thatuntil i saw
Lionel messi.Messi the Argentine player is exactly following the same footsteps of the famous fifa legend Dieogp Maradona.
Lets take a quick review at both Players .
1. Maradona was born in Argentine and so did Messi.
2.Both the players look short ,as they both have the same height of 5″5 feet.
3.Messi and Maradona both born to poor families and struggled hard in their lives.
4.Both the players play from their left foot .
5.Maradona served his international team Argentina served as a captain wearing the 10 no shirt and so is Lionel Messi doing .
6.Both the players have played for Barcelona , wearing the same shirt no 10.
7.During the worldcup Maradona scored a goal in 2nd half, beating all the defenders from the half way he scored the goal,which was declared as the goal of century, later on Messi playing for Barcelona did the goal in same way. take a look by your self
8.In the fifa world cup Final match against England, Maradona made his team won the match ,scoring a goal by his hand (which is consider as a foul ),he called that goal ” the hand of God “, later on Messi few years ago scored the same goal for Barcelona against Esponyal .
9.Both the players have been declared as the best players of their times.
10.Maradona had also served the argentina as a couch in 2010 world cup and i bet after retirement Messi will do the same.
Maradona is considered to be the world 2nd best player after Brazilian Legend Pele.Maradona ruined his football career when he got involved into drugs,his health detonated and then a time came he left football,but Messi is not getting involved into drugs, so i believe that history repeats its self with a better change 🙂
