The 79-year-old three-time World Cup winner told Pilhado: "Today, the best player in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo.

"I think he's the best, because he's more consistent, but you can't forget about [Lionel] Messi, of course, but he's not a striker."

Pele added that the GOAT debate would extend beyond Messi and Ronaldo and include legendary players like Johan Cruyff and Franz Beckenbauer.

But the 59-year-old Argentine insisted that he still 'prefers' Messi over Ronaldo in the debate between the two players.

Maradona told Argentine TV channel TyC Sports: "Cristiano is an animal. I wish he was Argentine.

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

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