Cassano: Why Barcelona star Messi better than Maradona

Former Real Madrid striker Antonio Cassano insists Barcelona star Lionel Messi is a superior player to Diego Maradona.

Cassano believes Messi's consistency makes him superior to the Napoli legend.

“Maradona did something never seen before for 4-5 years, but Messi has been doing the same things for 15 years," the former Italy attacker told Corriere dello Sport.

“He's scored 710 goals and made 300 assists. When he plays, his team are already 1-0 up.

“The Maradona fans must get over it. There's someone who ousted him."
