However, his comments have revealed interesting insight into both the superstar players.

“I think Messi and Cristiano are hardly comparable,” Carvajal told El Chiringuito.

“They are two of the best players in history, but they are very different. Messi is a player who generates more football, he has a better vision for a pass.

“Messi is a player who always has the ball stuck to his feet and he always finds space.

“Cristiano is a player who focuses on getting into the area and scoring. He is an annihilator. They are different but at the same time so good.”

Carvajal has played against Messi an enormous number of times and may have a different idea of his passing skills. However, there is no doubt that CR7 is an absolute legend of the game as well.
