“For me it is Ronaldinho the best player in history,” Gerard told Deulofeu Brand.
“I saw him in person once when I was attending a game at the Camp Nou and he was sitting next to me. It was a wonderful experience.
Messi is amazing too, i like him a lot.
I played with him for six months and he’s a nice guy, a great player. The whole world loves Messi.”
Deulofeu, who arrived at La Masia in 2003 at the age of 9, played the first half of the 2017/18 season alongside Leo Messi in FC Barcelona’s first team. However, the Catalan left the Blaugrana on loan in January 2018 Watford and never returned to the Camp Nou. The 26-year-old recently joined on loan Udinese.
As for Gerard’s opinion on the GOAT, there aren’t many who would agree with him. Don’t compare Ronaldinho, who has been at the top for two or three seasons, with Messi, who has maintained his incredible level for more than 10 years.
