Diego Maradona:goalkeepers are scared of Cristiano Ronaldo than Messi

The Argentina legend says the pair are equally
good, but did point to the Real Madrid star’s
greater threat from distance
Diego Maradona believes the debate over which
player is better out of Lionel Messi and Cristiano
Ronaldo is flawed as the pair are equally
matched.
The two best players in world football have again
showcased their talismanic qualities this season,
with Messi netting 53 goals in all competitions for
Barcelona and Ronaldo scoring one more for Real
Madrid.
As a result both players are often compared, but
Maradona says the argument is futile, but did
point to the Portugal international’s greater
threat from outside the box.
“It’s not the case that Messi is better than
Ronaldo or Ronaldo is better than Messi. I think
they are at the same level,” Maradona told Sky
Sports.
“Cristiano is a predator in front of goal. You can’t
let Cristiano shoot from anywhere in the
opposition half.
“Goalkeepers are scared of him. You have to be
honest, goalkeepers are scared of Cristiano. They
are not so scared of Messi in those areas because
he doesn’t have the same power as Cristiano.
“Cristiano is an incredible professional. I think at
this present time he is right up there at Messi’s
level.”
