A Real Madrid legend still prefers to bet on Messi rather than Cr7.
Vicente del Bosque has expressed his belief that Lionel Messi should be considered the best football player in the world ahead of Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
The former Spain manager believes Messi’s main virtue that sets him apart from the rest is that he always plays that kind of creative street football that fans love to watch.
“Messi [est le meilleur au monde] and I’ll tell you why, ”Del Bosque told Canal Sur.
Not to miss
“I do not [le dis pas] to discredit Cristiano. [Messi] is a child of the street, of the neighborhood. One of those we played with and he laughed at you on the pitch. That’s why he’s the best player in the world. “
Messi is Argentina’s captain and leader of the current edition of the Copa America, and the Argentine has given himself a great start for his country’s entry into contention against Chile with a superb direct free kick, while Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace in Portugal’s opener against Hungary for the 2020 European Championship, setting himself several records in the process.
Vicente Del Bosque is the legendary Galactic coach of Real Madrid with whom he won the Champions League 2002 and La Liga in 2003 before being sacked already at the time by Florentino Perez.
