Ronaldo and Messi are both currently my teammates, who am I?

There is only one player that is currently in the same team as both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, and he refuses to pick who is the best.

Not too many footballers can boast they have played with either Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. However, there is one who can call both his teammate right now.

Here is a clue.

Messi plays his club football at Barcelona and is an Argentine international. Ronaldo is a Juventus player and a Portuguese international.

There is a solitary player who currently has ties with an element of each of those players.

Ladies and gentlemen representing both Argentine and Juventus, the one and only Paulo Dybala.

Dybala has the unique privilege of calling both players his teammate.

He plays alongside Cristiano Ronaldo in an attacking partnership for Juventus.

While when international duty calls he plays upfront with Lionel Messi.

In an interview with The Guardian’s Sid Lowe, Dybala insists the public only gets a glimpse of what it takes for the pair to be where they are.

He said:

“I’m the only player who shares a dressing room with both.”

“People only see the tip of the iceberg, not the work beneath; they haven’t won all they’ve won because they’ve been lucky.”

When it comes to who is the best, he answers very quickly and honestly if not disappointingly.

“I can’t answer that.”
