كارفخال: ميسي وكريستيانو أضعهم في نفس المستوى. لا أميل لأحدهما على الاخر. هما وحشان بكل ماتعنيه الكلمة و لم أستطع أن أميل لا لهذا ولا لهذا. أعتقد أنهما مختلفان جدًا، ميسي لاعب قادر على النزول لاستقبال الكرة وصناعة الهجمة و يستطيع المشاركة في اللعب وخلق المزيد من كرة القدم.… pic.twitter.com/6OIgnzC5DI

As per a report by Messi Xtra on X, in a recent video podcast, the Real Madrid defender had something to say about Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. Carvajal stated – “Messi and Ronaldo I put them on the same level. I don’t prefer one over the other. They are monsters in every sense of the word, and I could not choose neither this nor that”.
The La Liga’s right-back further inflicted that Leo is more of an attacking creator and “is able to go down and receive the ball”. While he opined that CR7 is more of a “monster at scoring goals, and attacking the area and finishing”. Carvajal conclusively asserted that it would have been “interesting to see” both the legends play together.
Dani Carvajal on the playing styles and skills of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo
Comparing the playing styles and skills of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, Carvajal stated – “Messi is a player who generates more football (soccer), he has a better vision for a pass”. “Cristiano is a player who focuses on getting into the area and scoring. He is an annihilator”, the Real Madrid defender further opined.
Many soccer players have in the recent past inflicted their verdicts regarding the comparison between CR7 and Leo. However, it can be asserted that Carvajal expressed his opinion on the matter in a very professional and analyzing sort of manner.
Dani Carvajal ignores Cristiano Ronaldo when naming his best Real Madrid player
Dani Carvajal chose his best Real Madrid player. However, much to the surprise of the fans, the 32-year-old didn’t pick Cristiano Ronaldo as his favorite Los Blancos player. The Spain international chose former Real Madrid player Raul as his best player ever to play for the La Liga club.
Carvajal reportedly expressed – “I identify a lot with him (Raul), as he is a player from the academics and someone who won everything on the basis of his work and effort”. “For the goals he has scored for Real Madrid, for me he is the most notable player of the club”, the Los Blancos’ number two further opined.
However, to this date, Carvajal not picking CR7 as his best player from the Spanish club comes as a surprise to the fans. Especially after the duo played a respectable number of matches at Real Madrid together and shared a decent tally of goals and assists between them.
