Ex-Ronaldo Teammate: Messi Is From Another Planet

Ex-Cristiano Ronaldo Teammate: Lionel Messi Is From Another Planet

By David Kappel - Feb 09, 2018 09:04 PM @kappilinho

A former teammate of Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's has praised the Portuguese but insisted his biggest rival Lionel Messi is from another planet.

Click through the gallery above to see eight players who have played with both Messi and Ronaldo.

Angel Di Maria is one of just a few footballers who have played alongside both Ronaldo and Messi – the Argentine starred next to Ronaldo during his time at Real, and features with Messi in their national team.

Having trained and played alongside both, Di Maria believes Messi is a level above the Los Blancos superstar.

"Cristiano is an excellent player. Being around at the same time as Messi has made it much more difficult for him," Di Maria told TyC's Libero show, as cited by AS.

"There are no words to describe Leo. He will always surprise you. One year on and Messi is the best, another year goes by and he's still the best; he's a player from another planet – an extraterrestrial."

Di Maria himself has started the new year superbly, scoring nine goals and assisting another eight strikes in just 10 appearances for Paris Saint-Germain in 2018.

Do you agree with Di Maria that Messi is a level above Ronaldo? Have your say in the comments section below.

Di Maria and Messi are both from Argentina. Charity begins at home. If you ask Pepe, he will obviously say Cr7. Therefore, no news here.

Messi is king. Ronaldo also one of the best ever,but Messi does so much more. He doesn't want to tap the ball in, he takes the ball from midfield, passes players, beats keepers, & puts the ball in the net. Not forgetting his pin-point accuracy in passing, & doesn't go down easily when fouled. He would rather get up & continue his run than settle for the free kick. Ronaldo always opts for the free kick. Rating: Messi - No 1, Ronaldo - No 2.

I agree with Di Maria Messi has no match right now. He is in the league of his own. He is a cut above all.

To me Di Maria is more magical and exciting to watch than both Ronaldo and Messi.
