Lionel Messi is definitely a joy to watch. Even though I've not seen him playing for Barcelona in Spanish Liga, just by watching him playing against Serbia and Montenegro last week gave me alot of insight towards this talented player. It may be premature to compare him to Maradona but he definitely has the potential. If you read his biography in Wikipedia you will probably know more about him. What do you think about him?
I agree with you. I've watched some of Messi's games, and I find that he is a talented, impressive player. Still, it is too early to say that he is the new Maradona. I've seen a lot of talented young players ended up rather disappointing as they grew up. So I never really trust those news about "New Pele", "New Maradona" from the media. All I see is that the media is playing on the desire of the public soccer fans wanting to see a new Maradona/ Pele, a new legend player appears before them, and so the media will not miss any chance of exaggerating a young star with more talent than his peers, though I have to admit Messi is a really good player.
Well I don't know if he is the new Maradona, but I do know that he is a great player.. he have a huge potencial and I hope that he will be better and better... we need to remember that he is only 17 years old.
he's an excellent player. argentina is used to create players who delight any football lover. that's why i think they should win this world cup. they showed their potential against serbia, they have a wide variety of talents. speaking again about messi, he may be the next maradona... he'll be great. but don't forget about other argentinians, such as saviola, please.
when you say new maradonna...does that mean a fat cheating druggie????lol
cos he doesnt look like the type
i'm tired each time a young player from argentina comes in europe every shouts OMG new Maradonna. Messi is MESSI and he is damn a good player
Messi looks like an amazing player already. I think he's gonna win a few world player of the year awards when he's older. Argentina are my favourites to win the trophy too now.
May be but not now.Messi may play as well as Maradona but Maradona is also a good person.Very kind and helpful so I can't decide it yet.
