Brazilian great Romario has given the reason he is better than Lionel Messi.
Romario said he is better than Messi in his combined Johan Cruyff vs. Pep Guardiola Barcelona dream team.
Romario and Messi enjoyed iconic spells at Barcelona during their respective careers.
Between goalkeepers Andoni Zubizarretta and Victor Valdes, Romario also picked the former as the team’s goalkeeper.
He opted for Dani Alves over Albert Ferrer as the team’s right-back and when it was the time to choose between Guardiola and Sergio Busquets as the defensive midfielder of his team, Romario picked the now Manchester City boss.
He picked Ronald Koeman over Gerard Pique and Angel Nadal over Javier, Mascherano and Iniesta over Bakero.
He picked Sergi Barjuan over Eric Abidal at left back and Stoichkov over David Villa.
He preferred Xavi over Guillermo Amor and opted for Txiki over Pedro and for the No.9 position he chose himself over Lionel Messi.
Giving the reason for his decision the Brazilian great said, “Because we play different positions. In his position, he is the best. In mine, I am better than he is,” according to Sportskeeda.
