For Menotti, Iniesta over Messi and Di Stefano over Maradona
He said Alfredo Di Stefano is the “king among kings” of all time.
Although according to ”El Flaco”: “It doesn’t make much sense to compare different eras of football.”
“The king among kings is Alfredo Di Stefano. Then it follows, in chronological order, Pele, Cruyff and Maradona. Then, maybe Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Zidane and there you get lost,” says Menotti.
Cristiano Ronaldo, for Menotti, lacks something to be a king. “Princes there have been a few: Beckenbauer, Platini, Laudrup” but they do not enter the golden list of Cesar, who is always consulted before any football issue for his distinct view of the world’s most beautiful game.
