Diego Maradona hailed Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, as the ‘Greatest’ in a recent interview. The Argentinian legend also said that Bayern Munich boss, Pep Guardiola, needs some time to reach Mourinho’s level.

“For me, Mourinho is the greatest without a shadow of a doubt because he knows what you're going to say before you say it. It's extremely dangerous! That's what makes him Mourinho. That's what makes him the greatest,” said the World Cup winner. “Pep or Mourinho? I say Mourinho. I think Pep needs a little more time, as Mourinho has had, to be Mourinho.”

Goalkeepers are scared of Ronaldo

When asked about who the greatest player was in current times, Maradona, 54, said that Messi and Ronaldo could not be separated the way they are playing right now.

“Cristiano is a predator in front of goal. You can't let Cristiano shoot from anywhere in the opposition half,” Maradona added. “Goalkeepers are scared of him. You have to be honest, goalkeepers are scared of Cristiano. They are not so scared of Messi in those areas because he doesn't have the same power as Cristiano.”

”Cristiano is an incredible professional. I think at this present time he is right up there at Messi's level. It's not the case that Messi is better than Ronaldo or Ronaldo is better than Messi. I think they are at the same level.”
