Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has openly revealed the better player between Argentina star Lionel Messi and Portugal superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
Speaking to his Atleti assistant German Burgos, Simeone has clearly revealed that Messi’s role for Argentina is lucrative compared to Ronaldo’s for Portugal as a normal team.
“Messi is very good, but he is very good because he plays alongside extraordinary players,” Simeone comments on the leaked tape.
“If you had to choose between Messi and Ronaldo for a normal team, who would you choose?”
“I do not see anyone leading, it is anarchy and not leadership. I see a team who is lost,” Simeone added.
“It is clear that in the dressing room players are holding on to fists but in these situations, you need someone to fight.”
“We all say the players are the most important part of the game and the Coach usually play it down when players mess it up, but the Coach is also participating in this.”
Argentina have lost their second game of Group D as Messi and his teammates suffered a 3-0 defeat on Sunday night against Croatia.
