Whenever speech or writes it is necessary to listen it. It treats of Jorge Valdano, a scholar of the football with whose dialectic would be able to do beato of the football to the most agnostic balompédico. In this occasion, and taking advantage of the exit of his last disk "Football: the infinite game", Valdano reflexiona in a wide interview on the differences in the current football with the one of does years, also signals to Cristiano Ronaldo like the player prototype of the current football and to Leo Messi like all the contrary.

"In Spain, the revolution was especially technical. They have admitted players very pequeñitos that in another period would have had problems to evolve, is a signal that the only that measures the football is the size of the talent. If we move us from the prejudice expected more to Ronaldo that to Messi. Ronaldo is the player of the 21st century, as well as to Messi guesses him the street to Christian guesses him the gymnasium. It is a type until of movements more mechanical, robotic, of player expected. This begins by the capacity to give him the ball to the player that has the T-shirt of the same colour. For this be big or boy is indifferent", commented.

Valdano Also defended the Spanish football above others, like the English. "Pellegrini Said that the best league of the world is the Premier but that the best football of the world plays in the League. It is a diplomatic attempt, because if it plays the best football, the best is the League, the other is the wrapping, the marketing, the flawless stadiums, a very good organisation, questions that are not the game. In Spain, do not look what did well yesterday if it does not do ten years with a formative revolution that has name and surname, tiqui taca, that generated a new world where the ball is the formative centre of the player. And from the collective technician, the Spanish football marks a very big superiority. The one who commands is the one who is able to give him to the ball the dimension that has above the tactical, the physicist and the psychological", affirmed.

Finally, on the eliminatory between Bayern of Munich and Athletic of Madrid described to this and to his trainers Pep Guardiola and Diego Simeone like the Bilardismo against the Menotismo 3.0. "I am so trained from does so much time with the Bilardismo and the Menotismo that this seems me a new version 3.0, two very respectful trainers the one with the another, anybody elogió more to Guardiola that Simeone. His praises dignified the eliminatory but this fight between opposite is very entertained and does not go to die never, is so old like the football and inside 50 years will put other proper names but with the same literature", concluded.
