Ferguson made this known in an interview with The Times to honour legendary sportswriter, Hugh McIlvanney.

When asked to choose between Messi and Maradona, he said:

“Told of this, I would side with Souness, who said Mess is a better player than Maradona on that one.”

“Maradona’s career at the very top was only a few years.”

Ferguson added:

“But I can imagine Hugh’s response. You don’t know what you’re talking about!’ While blowing a big puff of smoke in your face, lighting another stogie and speaking with that wonderful, rasping voice.”
