Messi & Ronaldo Are ‘Completely Different Aliens’

Barcelona and Portugal winger Francisco Trincao has commented about playing with two of football’s greatest players, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Trincoa is one of a handful of players who have played alongside both players, since he joined Barcelona earlier this year and also broke into the Portuguese national side in October.

The 20 year old says he would never choose which is better.

“They are two completely different aliens,” Trincao said in an interview with Mundo Deportivo.

“Among the two best players in history. As a southpaw, I love Messi, but Cristiano is my compatriot, an animal, a phenomenon, and it would be unfair for me to say who is best.”

Trinca says that that he would have loved to see Messi and Ronaldo play together

“As a football lover, when the faxing mess happened, I hoped he would go to Juventus so we could see the two of them together.”

‘But for me, Messi’s place is where he is and where he has to end up is in this huge club, Barca.”
