Tevez On The Difference Between Messi & Ronaldo

Carlos Tevez On The Difference Between Lionel Messi & Cristiano Ronaldo

By Kurt Buckerfield - Sep 12, 2018 08:33 PM @KurtLaduma

Former Argentina forward Carlos Tevez, who has played with both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, has explained how much harder the Portuguese used to work compared to his famous rival.

Reports: The Four Players Zidane Would Sign For Man Utd

Tevez spent two seasons playing alongside Ronaldo at Manchester United, and was also named on the same teamsheet as Messi on many occasions for the Albiceleste.

Asked about the difference between the pair in a recent interview, Tevez told stories of the work Ronaldo put in off the field, and also explained how football always seemed to come naturally to his countryman.

"I've never seen Messi in the gym, just as I've never seen him do technical exercise," he said, according to Calciomercato.

"He does everything in a natural way, as it all comes spontaneously with the ball.

"Ronaldo, on the other hand, instead, was always in the gym. If we trained at nine in the morning, he would train in the gym for roughly an hour before the training even started. The gym became like an obsession for him.

"When the training was set for nine in the morning, I arrived at eight and he was already there. Even if I arrived at 7:30, he was already there.

"I began to ask myself, 'How can I get rid of this guy?' So one day I arrived at six (in the morning) but he was already there! Sleepy, but he was there."

Messi has scored four goals for Barcelona so far this season, while Ronaldo is yet to open his account for new club Juventus.

@LIKALIME4BUCS , so basically you're telling us that you only started watching or Knowing Messi after 2010 world cup. If that is the case then you don't even qualify to comment here on SL about any football matter because you don't know anything and you're still learning.

Ronaldo's work rate and achievement encourages many of us who were born less intelligent/skillful

Messi will forever shine in Spain, nothing special about him. He is just in a box comfortable and he isn't challenging himself. On the other hand, Cristiano is a versatile player, he caused a stir in Barclays, found Messi in his backyard (LaLiga) challenged and surpassed him on many accolades. CR7 is and will forever be the BEST, like it or not, after all, hard work beats talent!

Messi is the greatest of all time. And its easy to see that. Its just attention seeking bloggers who think by engaging on this debate between Messi and Cr7 will make them seem smarter or gain popularity. Every nuetral and honest football fan recognises this easy.
