Dutch football legend Johan Cruyff has heaped praise on both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for their contrasting styles and the entertainment they bring to La Liga.
The former Barcelona coach stated that while Messi relies on his amazing technique, the Portuguese superstar is all about power and physicality.
Cruyff did admit to enjoying both players’ styles and stressed that this was the reason that football is such a ‘wonderful game’.
"Messi and Ronaldo are the two most beautiful players now and with distinctive styles. One is purely technical while the other is physical as well," Cruyff told Times of India.
"And I like to watch both of them since this tells you clearly how different the game can be."
"Football is such a wonderful game because of its variations and its acceptance of every style. I like watching both at their best."
