Uruguay’s Fede Valverde, a Real midfielder sold to Deportivo La Coruna, went back on his statements he made about Leo Messi and Ronaldo, claiming that the Portuguese was the best player in the world.
« I wanted to come back to this little misunderstanding that there was at the campus with the children during my interview.It was a joke.I was joking with Fede Cartabia about Messi and Ronaldo, because he knows that I am from Madrid and that I still defend Cristiano as the best player in the world because he demonstrates it every day, match after match « assured the player in a video published on social networks.
The player has said he would never have signed to Real if his idol was Messi, star of Barca.
« If I was a fan of Messi, I think I will never have signed at Real, I wanted it to be clear, they are the two best players in the world but I will always be on the side of Cristiano Ronaldo ». he declares.
A few hours earlier, on a campus reserved for children from 4 to 12 years, the midfielder had assured that his real referent was Toni Kroos and Messi and Ronaldo « were the best players in the world » and that he had a penchant for Messi .
