A few years ago, Kevin Prince-Boateng gave a brilliant answer to football’s age old question; Ronaldo or Messi?
In 2016, a journalist asked Kevin Prince-Boateng who he thought was better between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
“For youngsters that are footballers, Ronaldo would have to be the best in the world,” he said.
“He is the best example to focus on because he trains at his maximum and has talent.
“He works like a crazy person, he’s passionate about what he does and about football. He always wants to be the best, always wants to be first in everything. He would have to be the model for everyone.
“But what Cristiano does works in this world, and only in this world.”
Boateng added: “Outside of this world, the best is Messi. Because he’s incredible.
“He does things that nobody else can do. Because of this, I don’t seem as of this world. Cristiano dominates this world and Messi is ahead of everyone.”
To be fair, Messi is out of this world. Some of the stuff he does on a football pitch is genuinely ridiculous.
Boateng will now call Messi teammates. Yes, really. He’s completed a shock move to Barcelona.
The La Liga giants have secured his services on an initial loan deal till the end of the season, and includes an option to buy for £7 million.
The 31-year-old has enjoyed spells across England, Italy and Germany. He’s also plied his trade in Spain with Las Palmas back in 2016.
How will he fare at Camp Nou? Let us know what you think.
