Italy legend Cassano trolls Real Madrid and praises 'the best' Messi
- The veteran striker: 'Lionel Messi to be the best, as I even named my son after him'
- He also tips Blaugrana to win the UCL next year
Even though Italy legend Antonio Cassano hasn't been playing for a top-level side for almost two years, he is still following the main news of the world football. Moreover, he still believes Blaugrana No.10 to be the best player. That's how he reacted ton Cristiano Ronaldo's sensational arrival at Juventus.
He said in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport, as quoted by Football Italia: “Juventus did a great deal by signing the second best player in the world. Of course, I still consider Lionel Messi to be the best, as I even named my son after him."
Cassano could now become a favourite among the Blaugrana fans as he mercilessly trolled their rivals Real Madrid for 'dumping' their star players. He continued: “I know Real Madrid well and all that counts, even for Florentino Perez, is the club. When the time came, they dumped the Brazilian Ronaldo and David Beckham, so I’m not surprised they treated Cristiano like that too."
Finally, Cassano named the Catalans to be the favourites to win the Champions League next year: “Having said that, I don’t think Juve are the favourites to win the Champions League, as I’d give that to Barcelona.”
