claims that Leo's playing style is closer to the way Brazilians play football.

"Leo Messi is one of the best players in football history alongside Pele and Maradona.

The 46-year-old was then asked to compare Leo and Maradona and the former Brazil international didn't hesitate to say what he felt was true.

"Compare Messi and Maradona? I've played against him (Messi) and I've seen him be named the best player in the world five times. That's why I stick with Messi. He's kept a high level for more than 10 years."
