Messi is better than Pele and Maradona – Pope Francis

The current Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis believes that his compatriot Lionel Messi is better than football legends Pele and Diego Maradona. The 266th Pope is a well-known supporter of the Argentine club, San Lorenzo. The Pope made the statement during an event organised on World Youth Day. He was quoted saying, “For me, [Lionel] Messi is better than Maradona and Pele.”
However, several pundits and fans have started questioning Messi’s greatness, ever since Messi announced his retirement from international football.
