Sergio Ramos has hit back in his war of words with Diego Maradona – claiming Lionel Messi is ‘light years’ ahead of the Argentine legend.
Maradona claimed that Uruguay stopper Diego Godin was a better defender than the Real Madrid centre-half.
And now the Spaniard has hit back, saying the Argentine public believe Messi to be a far superior footballer to Maradona.
“In Argentina they know that Maradona is light years away from the best Argentine player in history which, for me, is Lionel Messi,” he said.
Ramos also hit out at Iran for their ‘time-wasting’ as Spain came away with a 1-0 win in the World Cup Group B clash.
