He's the type that will do something incredibly idiotic and cost you a game or make a world class save that no one else could. The yin and the yang. Pinto (the back-up) looks like he won't be extended another season so everyone should start to see someone brought in to be the backup this summer (none of the kids in the youth system are that great).
People should keep in mind that while Maradona did win a world cup with an average squad the development of other nations now makes it much more difficult to win a world cup. This will only continue as we go into the future. Messi wasn't terrible in South Africa but not terrible isn't good enough for him.
I'm also appalled that no one has mentioned Lahm as one of the GOAT defenders even more so when you add in his size.
