Three times FIFA Ballon D’or winner said he wants to play with Lionel Messi and Manuel Neuer. The Real Madrid winger expressed his desire to play with world’s second and third best footballers of the year in future. During the award ceremony of 2014 FIFA Ballon D’or, he said he would like to play with one of the best forwards and goalkeepers.
Actually it was a question that was asked to the top three contenders of the Ballon D’or. Ronaldo surprised the media by revealing he would like to link up with his Barcelona rival and the World Cup winner goalkeeper.
Cristiano Ronaldo said “Football is about the present. The most important thing is the present. In the past there were great players, but for me it would be interesting to play with the two that are here with me now.”
Same question was asked to the four times Ballon D’or winner Lionel Messi. He replied “I always like playing with the best players. It may be difficult because of the teams we play for, but I like to play with the best and he is one of them.”
About the same question, Neuer told “I like playing with successful teams. I have idols from the past and it would of course be wonderful to play with those great players but it would be wrong to pick out only one.”
Well, it is quite clear that all of these three world class footballers have respect for each other. We don’t know whether they will play with each other or not. But, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti desperately wants Lionel Messi in his team. If the Italian manager signs Messi, then it will be probably the best Real Madrid team. What do you say?
