French player Adil Rami had the rare experience of being able to face two of the best players in the world today, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. So, what is the relevant impression regarding this experience?
For information, Adil Rami is a French player who has had a long career in Spain. The person concerned has defended Valencia and Sevilla.
Of course, during his career there, the player has experienced face to face with Lionel Messi who defended Barcelona, and Cristiano Ronaldo while still wearing Real Madrid.
When asked about his impression of the two players, Adil Rami first talked about Lionel Messi. According to him, the Argentine mega star has qualified skills that are almost impossible to stop.
“Lionel Messi, on the pitch, we feel we can’t do anything. We couldn’t hold on, he always had the right pass. It is a gift, “said Rami to RMC Sport.
However, Rami was very impressed by what Cristiano Ronaldo showed. He saw the Portuguese player as a goal machine which was the fruit of hard training.
“But the thing about Ronaldo that impressed me was the volume of hard work he put in. The first time I saw him was when I left Frejus and arrived in Lille. ”
“They were playing in the Champions League at that time. I looked at it and I was like ‘this one is awesome!’ Some time later, I met him in La Liga … a machine, “he said.
In fact, one of the moments that Rami remembers was when coach Unai Emery gave instructions not to give Cristiano Ronaldo the opportunity to take a kick.
“In the first few matches, I was a little stressed. Unai Emery told me not to give him space, to stay standing and have protection because when he kicks the ball, it’s over, “said Rami.
Unfortunately, at this time Cristiano Ronaldo is no longer in Spain, since 2018 he decided to move to Italy to defend Juventus. Meanwhile, Adil Rami and Lionel Messi are still in Spain.
