Barcelona star Lionel Messi Rates Gareth Bale Better Than Cristiano Ronaldo?
Lionel Messi reportedly thinks Gareth Bale is more talented player than Cristiano Ronaldo. According to reports in Spanish daily Diario Gol, Messi is more wary of the pacy Welshman’s talents than the Portuguese goal machine.
The reports also made it clear that Messi has a great respect for his long-time rival Cristiano Ronaldo, but, he thinks Bale is more capable of causing opposition defences problems at the playing side.
Messi is believed to have great respect for his Ballon d’Or rival, but Bale can cause to defences.
The Portuguese superstar has not been at his best this season, but he has still incredibly managed to score 26 goals. On the other hand, bale is working hard to get back to his best and will be keen to contribute in the business end of the season.
Bale has been working hard to get back to his best, and with 11 league games to go until the end of season, the Spanish giants will look to depend on the attacker when going forward.
Ronaldo has delivered goals in this campaign, but has received criticism for many of his displays.
Even Diario Gol also went on to claim that while Messi thinks Ronaldo is the leader of the Madrid attack at the moment, but he thinks Bale will soon become the most important player for Los Blancos in the upcoming matches.
Gareth Bale has had an injury-hit season so far, when the Real Madrid team looks completely different when Bale is on the pitch and he definitely adds an extra dimension to the attack with glimpses of talent and potential.
Even Gareth Bale has emerged from Ronaldo’s shadow to carry the team to the top of the La Liga table.
While Cristiano Ronaldo has not been in his usual goal scoring best performances, he has still popped up and scored over 25 goals. The Portuguese superstar is capable of creating something out of nothing and he is still capable of winning matches single-handly in some matches.
As Neymar is currently shining at the Nou Camp and, after his Champions League against Paris Saint-Germain where he scored twice goals, is coming closer to becoming Barcelona’s main star.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are set to meet in a high voltage El Clasico match on April 24th. Los Blancos are favourites to claim the La Liga title this season and Barcelona will have to get a victory if they have some hopes of winning the game.
Messi and Co will be pumped up for the big match, but the likes of Ronaldo and Bale will be pretty confident of getting the better results over Barcelona defence.
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been the two best players of the world with great popularity and fan contest and the duo has dominated the Ballon d’Or awards since 2008. However, all good things come to end and with Ronaldo currently 32, it is the natural way that the 27-year-old Bale will start taking more responsibility and importance in the Real Madrid squad in the upcoming matches.
The report also claimed that while Messi views the Portuguese as Real’s current leader and he believes that Bale will soon become Los Blancos’ most important player.
