Carlos Tevezis certainly the right man to ask the controversial question of who’s the better footballer between ex-international teammate Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona of blessed memory. The ex-West Ham United and Manchester City striker was asked the question during a recent interview with ESPN and his answer was a disappointment to those who wanted clarity on the Messi and Maradona discussion.

When asked to choose between Maradona and Messi, Carlos Tevez opted for both since they are from his native Argentina as he failed to pick one. According to him, the argument on who’s the better player between the two is even more within the Argentine football circles than what’s obtainable outside before adding that the best thing to do is to enjoy it.

On Messi and Ronaldo, Carlos Tevez said that they are both out of the ordinary having played with them during his football career which is on hold at the moment. He has taken a little break from football at the age of 37 on the back of his exit from boyhood club Boca Juniors last year.

Carlos Tevez played with Paris Saint Germain (PSG) star Messi for several years in the colours of the Argentine national team and also spent two years with Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United. He was with Ronaldo at Old Trafford from 2007 to 2009 before they both left the club in the same summer.Tevez joined the Red Devils from West Ham United and he left them to sign for city rivals Manchester City. On his part, Ronaldo left United to join Real Madrid for a then world-record of £80m and he recently returned to Old Trafford for his second spell.

On Ronaldo and Messi, Carlos Tevez told ESPN that he learnt from the two players in addition to enjoying them as they showed their unbelievable talents.
