In the latest interview with Wow Hydrate, De Bruyne was asked to pick between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as his dream teammate. Interestingly, the Manchester City forward chose the Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo over Lionel Messi as his dream teammate with whom he would like to play someday.
The video was posted on Instagram where the Belgium star was seen answering some of the questions and showed his skills by shooting penalties with Kem, the interviewer.
De Bruyne was asked some rapid-fire queries and he responded bravely and honestly making his intentions clear of choosing Ronaldo as his dream teammate to share the field. He sided with Ronaldo as thinks that the Portuguese are a pure beast in front of the goal and he could probably play the role of serving him balls which he could finish with his goal-scoring ability.
Lionel Messi matches the role that De Bruyne likes to play as he is the ball-maker which depicts the Argentine’s style of gameplay. Earlier De Bruyne claimed that he would like to feed Ronaldo more goals as he feels that he can become a great playmaker if Ronaldo is at the receiving end scoring goals from wherever he gets the ball from him.
“I would probably say Ronaldo because he’s more of a typical striker. Messi is still more of a playmaker. I’m a playmaker, so you can give me a striker!”, De Bruyne mentioned during an interview with Wow Hydrate.
Cristiano Ronaldo v Lionel Messi- Stats this season
Cristiano Ronaldo made a shocking move to his older club where he started his journey as one of the biggest players and then left the city for Real Madrid.
The Portuguese recently achieved the mark of 100 club goals for Manchester United making him the first player to score more than 100 goals for 3 different clubs in 3 different top-flight leagues. He has scored 24 goals this season in 35 appearances making him the third-highest scorer on the list behind Son and Salah.
On the other hand, Lionel Messi hasn’t had the best of seasons after he moved to Paris Saint-Germain last summer for free as Barcelona had no options in keeping him.
He scored 11 goals in 33 appearances for the club which doesn’t reflect his status when he was at Barcelona. Messi might not play further in Europe as speculations are high about him joining an MLS side this summer but there are no solid facts to trust the matter.
