s

Barcelona’s talismanic forward Lionel Messi said on Saturday he was inspired by Argentine legend Diego Maradona right from his childhood.

The Barcelona star has been compared to his legendary predecessor over the last few years because of their playing styles.
“I never followed anyone in particular, although when I started to think for myself Diego (Maradona) had recently returned home,” Messi was quoted as saying by goal.com. “That was in 1993.”

“He joined Newell’s Old Boys when he came back from Spain and was part of the national team that qualified for USA ’94. If anybody inspired me starting out, it was undoubtedly him.”
