Gerrard Pique has weighed in on the debate among fans on who the better player is between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi and has said what he thinks about them.
Pique who is a former Manchester united player alongside Cristiano Ronaldo is one of very few players to have played with both superstars,hailed Cristiano Ronaldo as the best of human but insists it’s hard to believe Messi is human.”I think that they are both amazing,’ Pique said ‘We are talking about two of the best players, not just in the world but the history of this sport.I always said that Messi has some talent that no one has. I mean, he has the ball and his speed controlling the ball. The ball doesn’t go two metres far from his foot, it’s always there. It’s impossible to catch him, this talent I didn’t see from anyone.Cristiano Ronaldo is such a different player, they are very different. He is tall, strong, he’s really complete. He can do anything. He can do goals with the head, free-kicks, penalties, take one on one.But for me it’s like Messi is not human but Cristiano is the best of the humans”.

Pique who is also fortunate to have played under Sir Alex Ferguson and Pep Guardiola also weighed in on both managers,saying “Sir Alex Ferguson, when I was there,I remember (Carlos) Queiroz was the guy who took training, he [Ferguson] was like more outside, controlling everything, taking a different position.’ And Guardiola was like every day, he was there, but both of them you can see their careers. They are both fantastic”.
