Di Maria rates Messi ahead of any great player he has played with


The Argentine has openly spoken highly about his countryman, Lionel Messi. after the PSG man was asked about the best player he has played with, either for Club or Country.

“It was a dream to have the possibility to play with [Wayne] Rooney, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic, Cristiano [Ronaldo], Leo [Messi] they were players that I used on the PlayStation and I would never have imagined I’d get to play with them,” Di Maria.

“I used to watch them and then to have the opportunity to play with them was really nice”.

“Leo is the best of the four, Cristiano is a monster and Neymar is simply a joy for football. He’s Brazilian and when he plays all he does is have fun”. 

“Ibra is crazy, a total character. On the pitch he might seem like a bad guy but he is awesome, a really good guy. I got along with him very well when he was here”.

“Rooney is a quiet guy. I never thought he would be as strong as he is. With all the great players I have played with, it’s hard to choose. But if I had to pick one, it would be Leo”.
