In an interview conceded to the magazine "France Football", the creator of the style of game that has done big in the last times to the FC Barcelona, Johan Cruyff, has spoken on some subjects of interest and in particular of the eternal comparative between Messi and Cristiano, that for him does not exist since it thinks that the Portuguese star of the Real Madrid is too individualista in comparison to the Argentinian of the FC Barcelona, that carries wonderfully well with all his mates, in a tuning that remains patent always on the terrains of game.

"Messi is a player of team and the splendour of his game has sense inside the collective football. However, the freedom of Ronaldo situates in some more reduced surroundings. His position in the terrain of game is the one of a player that thinks that his way to help to the team is marking goals. There is a difference. Messi also marks a lot, taking advantage of his own qualities, but also without losing of sight to his mates of team", has explained the Dutch on the eternal dichotomy. In another order, has thought that the best trainers are used to to be midfield players.

"I think that the best trainers of the world are always midfield players because his position during his sportive careers forced them to think and organise the game of all the team, no only around his own person, but around a community. By his position had to see, dissect and analyse each played. That is to say, that before knowing it already did of technicians. Rijkaard, for example, was a player that took the ball and organised the game. And the same occurred with Guardiola".

And it ensures, finally, that with Franz Beckenbauer only there was a big rivalry, but that keep a good relation. "With Beckenbauer, were very fellow. Had a big respect by the other. A day even went to esquiar together in Germany".
