Maradona's son: Messi is the best person to play football... My father was not a human being!

The son of the late Argentine legend, Diego Maradona, said that his father is the greatest who has ever touched football, and he cannot be compared to any player, even if he is Lionel Messi.

Diego Maradona Jr. told Radio Del Plata: "I have a lot of respect and appreciation for Messi, he is the best in this period of history, not the best at all."

He continued, "I think that no one will reach the level that my father has."

But this does not mean that Maradona's son is not a fan of Leo, as he stated: I was happy when he won the Copa America, he muted many tongues, it was difficult to have Messi in your team for several years and you cannot enjoy it.

He continued, according to "Al Arabiya.net", "Messi is the best person who played football, but my father was not a human being."

Diego Maradona Jr. was born in Naples in 1986, after his father, Diego, had an affair with Cristina Singara, and Maradona did not recognize him at his birth, so he took his mother's family name.

Maradona admitted that he was his child in 2007, and his son talked about his relationship with his late father, saying: He asked me to forgive him many times, what happened was from the past, I told him that we enjoy the present together and that I want to stay with him.
