During the interview given to the Spanish newspaper El Pais, Pinto da Costa the president of FC Porto didn’t avoid of the classic question
Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi? Who is the best in the world?
He answered “I can not forget, even if i want, the patriotic feeling but that can not leave us lose reasoning. It gives me much grief when National managers vote in the world’s best and see, for example, that the Portuguese National Coach, my friend Fernando Santos, does not place Messi among the 3 best. Absurd. Faced with such a direct question to a Portuguese, I will say that Ronaldo is the best in the world but Messi is from another planet“.
