Diego Maradona Wishes Christiano Ronaldo Was Argentine

Diego Maradona says he wishes Cristiano Ronaldo was Argentine, but still prefers Lionel Messi to lead the Albiceleste.

Ronaldo, who was recently awarded his fourth Ballon d'Or, has four Champions League titles with Real Madrid, equalling Messi's Numbers -- and led Portugal to their first major tournament crown in last summer's European Championships.

Maradona praised the Portuguese superstar on Monday, he would still prefer Messi, who, though he's yet to win a title with Argentina, has led his country to three consecutive finals over the past three summers.

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