Maradona: I wish Ronaldo was Argentine

The Argentina icon prefers Lionel Messi over the Portuguese star, but would happily have taken the Real Madrid man for the Albiceleste

Diego Maradona would have liked to see a star of Cristiano Ronaldo's calibre line up alongside Lionel Messi for Argentina's national side.

VARs could ruin World Cup

Argentine legend Maradona is full of praise for Ronaldo, but he would still take Messi over the Portugal superstar regardless of his inability to deliver Argentina the world title.

"Cristiano is an animal," Maradona told TyC Sports. "I wish he was Argentine.

"But I still prefer Messi. He is enjoying playing football and goes by opponents with ease."

Messi has an Olympic gold medal, but he has yet to win a World Cup, which is something Maradona had accomplished once during his career.

"Leo cannot deliver the World Cup on his own," Maradona added. "Even if he does not win a World Cup, we will still remember him."
