Pique: Messi isn’t human!

Gerard Pique accepts Cristiano Ronaldo is the ‘best player of the humans’ but Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi is from another world.

Pique has spoken to former Manchester United teammate Rio Ferdinand for BT Sport ahead of Barca’s Champions League game with Atletico Madrid and was asked the eternal question: Ronaldo or Messi?

“Both are amazing,” he told Ferdinand, AS reports.

“We’re not only talking two of the best players but two of the best in the history of the sport.

“Messi has a talent nobody else has. His speed is brutal with the ball at his feet and he doesn’t run more than two metres. It’s impossible to catch him.

“Cristiano is a very different type of player. He is tall, strong and powerful. He can do everything – take penalties, free kicks, he’s good with his head, good in one-on-ones.

“I always say that Messi isn’t human and Cristiano is the best of the humans.”
