Beckenbauer >>>>>>>>>>>>> Maradona IMO
that's why I said Rafa was like the Kaiser
Comparing anyone to Maradona is just an insult, the guy was a good player but overhyped
That's not something you say to an Argentine though
Well as I said that's arguable. Beckenbauer was a really good player too, and Maradona is sure overhyped. But I'm not sure it's fair to say Zidane>>Maradona. Argentina was about to win a second WC title in a row in 1990 and they had really crappy team that one year, bar Diego, and Germany only won on a very arguable penalty. Almost the same as Zidane. To me Zidane is no more of a genius than Maradona. I'm not talking about personal life and stuff here. I personally prefer Cruyff over both though, even if he never won any WC.
