Last April, the legend of Barca Xavi had seen his comments on Cristiano Ronaldo distorted by an Arab media. The former midfielder of La Roja came back on this bad episode of the Messi/CR7 debate.
Translation is a perilous exercise among journalists, and those in the New Arab media can testify to this. In April, they had the chance to speak with the famous Xavi, who is currently in Qatar under the Al-Sadd jersey. Except that the publication of his interview provoked an outcry among the pro-Cristiano Ronaldo. The reason? It could be read that Madrid was “not intelligent” compared to Lionel Messi. The confusion coating this statement forced Xavi to support his point of view a few days later. “I said there were two types of speeds in football.” The physical aspect, where both players are at the same level, and the speed of being able to connect with his teammates, where Messi is superior. Faced with our confreres of Marca, the one who will be forever Blaugrana has recently expressed himself on what has almost been a monumental bad buzz.
“A c ** can not play football and even less be Cristiano Ronaldo,” entrusted the man to the 25 titles with FC Barcelona. I never talked about his intelligence as it was said. Cristiano is an extraordinary player, a period footballer. The problem he has is that there is another (player) who is practically the best player in history. Xavi said True, Lionel Messi is certainly the only concern in the life of the Portuguese star. But this year, as we say, it is well CR7 that will raise the Golden Ball for the 4th time, and which is approaching the historic fivefold of the Pulga. We don’t get too wet, but we do dip anyway.
