Paulo Dybala has finally lent a voice to the debate on football rivalry between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi,though he rather chose to sit on the fence in order to avoid unpleasant wrath of the two powerful footbballers
The argentine is one of the few footballers whose opinion on Messi-Ronaldo debate cannot be blown away having shared dressing room with both stars
Dybala is currently forming one of the most formidable partnerships with Ronaldo upfront at Juventus and both have shared a couple of goals between themselves since the campaign kicked off under new manager Maurizio Sarri.
The 26-year-old forward is similarly more of a national teammate with Messi in
Argentina- meaning he is an authority when it comes to finality of opinion on who the best player is between the two mercurial players in the world. Speaking on Messi-Ronaldo rivalry, Dybala chose to steer the middle course, though admitted both stars are lucky to have shared the same generation with each other and won a couple of trophies. ”I’m the only player who shares a dressing room with both and people only see the tip of the iceberg, not the work beneath,” Dybala told reporters. ”And, yeah, I know people have to ask but they must know what I’m going to say.
I can’t answer that.” Messi and Ronaldo shared eleven Ballon D’or between each other and it only was Lucas Modric who broke the decade-long monopoly between the duo since they burst into world football scenes.
Both players have also commented on their rivalry with both sides describing the competition as a very healthy one.
The Argentine forward took everyone by surprise by not including himself and his arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo in the five-man list.
