- Paulo Dybala is not interested in who the better player is between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi
- The Argentine shared the locker rooms with Messi and Ronaldo both at Juventus and Argentina team
- But he chose to play the role of the bat when asked who the better player is between the two powerful footies
Paulo Dybala has finally lent a voice to the debate on football rivalry between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, though chose to sit on the fence in order not to seek the wrath of the two powerful footies.
The Argentine is one of the few football stars whose opinion on Messi- Ronaldo debate cannot be taken with levity having shared the locker room with both stars.
Dybala is currently forming one of the most formidable partnerships with Ronaldo upfront at Juventus and both have shared a couple of goals between themselves since the campaign flagged off under new manager Maurizio Sarri.
The 26-year-old forward is similarly more of a national teammate with Messi in Argentina-- meaning he is an authority when it comes to finality of opinion on who the best player is between the two mercurial players in the world.
Speaking on Messi-Ronaldo rivalry, Dybala chose to steer the middle course, though admitted both stars are lucky to have shared the same generation with each other and won a couple of trophies.
”I’m the only player who shares a dressing room with both and people only see the tip of the iceberg, not the work beneath,'' Dybala told Guardian UK.
”And, yeah, I know people have to ask but they must know what I’m going to say. I can’t answer that.”
Messi and Ronaldo shared eleven Ballon D'or between each other and it only was Lucas Modric who broke the decade-long monopoly between the duo since they burst into football scenes.
Both players have also commented on their rivalry with both sides describing the competition as a very healthy one.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Lionel Mesi has named Luis Suarez Neymar Jr, Sergio Aguero, Kylian Mbappe, and Eden Hazard as the best players in the world, with the Barcelona hitman making his brilliant picks across Europe's top leagues.
The Argentine forward took everyone by surprise by not including himself and his arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo in the five-man list.
