Former Real Madrid goalkeeper, Jerzy Dudek has revealed some spicy insight knowledge on Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, which will surprise many.
The 42-year-old released his autobiography where he cast light on the long standing rivals. Dudek describes the public perception of Ronaldo and Messi as wrong and explained why.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is arrogant, but at the end it is at least true to what he shows,” EL Confidential quote Dudek (be aware, quotes are translated from Spanish into English).
“It is what people perceive it, like it or not. However, Messi is false and provocative.”
The Poland shot stopper recalls one particular incident where Messi “insulted” Sergio Ramos and Pepe from the time under Pep Guardiola.
"Pepe and Ramos were told such profanity that no one could imagine such a quiet and seemingly good guy, like Messi (insulting them),” he added.
“Barca of Guardiola lived provocation."
Dudek further explains that the behaviour of Barcelona’s players during the 5-0 thrashing of Los Blancos in 2010 was unacceptable and according to him really hurt the Real players and Jose Mourinho.
"Mourinho wasnt happy when we swapped shirts with Barca after the 5-0 defeat. He rebuked us," Dudek recalled.
