Dani Alves Names His Toughest Opponent

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 06, 2017 09:56 AM @KeeganKruger

Paris Saint-Germain's Brazilian star Dani Alves has named the toughest opponent he has faced in his illustrious career so far.

Failed Transfers XI

The 34-year-old, who has played for Bahia, Sevilla, FC Barcelona and Juventus and has shared the field with some of the best footballers of his generation, has now revealed the name of the player he found toughest to contain over the years. 

"I think Cristiano Ronaldo," the Brazil international replied when asked who his most difficult opponent was during an exclusive interview with FIFA TV.

Alves was also asked who he thought the best player of all time is.

"I say Messi because I've seen him play," he added.

"Of the others, I have heard what they speak of them, but I can't corroborate it because I haven't seen them.

"I choose Messi next to Neymar, they are the most spectacular I've seen."

@chenenelizo1 yet he played him last season and clearly states the toughest he has ever faced is Ronaldo and also insists that the only reason he says that Messi is greatest is only because he played alongside him and not Ronaldo so he can't talk about someone he doesn't fully know like sismessi

Finally an honest answer from someone who does not suck up to anyone, Pigue,Puyol,Mascherano etc except for Abidal they all should say CR7 they have never contained him or slow him down in anyway
