Liverpool Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp has compared the capabilities of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, Juventus striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
Klopp, who previously faced the two stars, explained the characteristics of each, and how he sees their potentials that are always able to make a difference at all levels.
“For me, Messi is the best. But I have unlimited respect for Ronaldo. I will explain it this way. We played against both, and against each of them it is almost impossible to defend the goal,” he said in comments reported by sports.ru.
And the German coach continued: “If it was possible to draw an ideal soccer player, he will be a player with the status of Ronaldo, he can jump high and run quickly like Cristiano .. Then I would like to add to the way Ronaldo deals with football – his handling is impeccable and professional, and he cannot it would be better”.
“On the other hand, Messi makes things look very simple. So I like him a little bit more (than Ronaldo). But Cristiano is a great player, too,” he added.
