Asked about the now cult exercise to give his preference between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, Ronaldo did not escape there.
Oh, Ronaldo! The first of the name, the one who popularized the brand and gave ideas to others. Whether Ronaldinho or Cristiano, impossible to imagine that they do not have a moment profited from this popularity to make a place in the world of the round ball. Of course, the talent then did the rest and it must be believed that those who carry this name have faculties that others do not have. Interviewed by Spanish radio Onda Cero in the company of Roberto Carlos, his former teammate at Real Madrid, Ronaldo returned to some of his football career events. But he also gave his opinion in the purely media duel between CR7 and Lionel Messi. Here is the response of “Fénomeno”: “Between Cristiano, Messi or Neymar, I would even Luis Suarez, I choose Cristiano because he is Real Madrid.” “But we cannot forget all the good that Messi and Neymar do.” Although he is now an ambassador of the Casa Blanca, R9 does not forget that he also played for FC Barcelona. Diplomat.
Well known for his party side during his career (he is not Brazilian for nothing), Ronaldo also released a few well-placed sentences, a delight for journalists. Like when he mentioned his friendship with R. Carlos: “I spent more nights with him than with all my women together.” Or a small tackle slipped to his former selection captain: “Since Dunga is gone, Brazil is now gaining respect and playing well”. As for Neymar, he still loves him as much: “It is an emblematic figure but we take too much care of his private life and his role as captain, forgetting that he is only 24 years old and that he can be mistaken”. And we kept the best for the end, about his way of life in Madrid: “Florentino (Pérez, ed.) told me that I had to stay at home more often and less out.” He had given me the example of Figo. “So I told him that if I had a wife like Figo, I would also have stayed at home more.” Phenomenal to the end! What do you think about R9?
