The Real Madrid star refused to choose between his former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona star Lionel Messi as the greatest player of all time.
Only a few would argue that the biggest soccer player in the world today is not just Messi or Ronaldo. In fact, many people believe that they have surpassed greats from past eras such as Diego Maradona, Pele and other players, making them the greatest of all time. But like other sports, there is only one “GOAT”.
Over the years, many people in football have chosen between Messi and Ronaldo. Very little like that of Lucas Vazquez, Ronaldo’s former teammate at Real Madrid, who was reluctant to choose between the two.
In his latest Bleacher Report, AMA Q&A with fans, Vazquez answers interesting questions about his career and how it feels to play with the Portuguese star.
According to Vazquez, he had many unforgettable moments with Ronaldo. When asked what the legendary striker was like at Real Madrid, Vazquez revealed that Ronaldo demanded the best from everyone, including himself.
“I have many happy memories, for example when I helped him fight PSG. It was a beautiful moment. He is a professional player who is extraordinary and he demands the best from himself and his team-mates, so he makes everyone do their best, “said Vazquez about Ronaldo.
Although the former Ronaldo colleague did not put “CR7” above Messi in the debate “GOAT” for a decade. But he agreed that the greatest was just one of them.
“I think between Messi and Cristiano, both of them are extraordinary players who make history. Years have passed to see two players like them,” Vazquez said when asked who was the greatest of all time.
The 28-year-old also hinted at the possibility of bringing his talent to the United States. After a fan asked if he would consider playing in MLS, Vazquez said: “That would be amazing. I would love to play in MLS someday.”
Vazquez has a La Liga championship and three Champions League titles in his record. He also has many pedigrees as a Real Madrid winger since appearing through the club’s academy. So far, Vazquez has scored a total of 13 goals in 136 appearances. He also has nine senior caps for the Spanish national team since his debut in 2016. Overall, Vazquez has been a significant contributor to Spain and Real Madrid.
