Have you ever seen Messi get punched in the face? I’ve never seen a single foul like this on Messi. Today’s players have it much much easier than the greats from the past. Watch this video below to see how Maradona was fouled in the 80’s. Some of these fouls in the video didn’t even get a yellow card but they would all be red cards today.
Maradona was arguably the best soccer player of the 80’s, if not ever, so it was natural that he would be fouled so much.
Look at how much easier the players now have it. Think about this before you say that the players now-days are so much greater.
