Gabriel Batistuta gave an extensive interview to the Sunday edition of the Argentinian newspaper La Nación, in which he did not spare the praise given to Lionel Messi, who, he believes, has everything to be one of the great figures of the next World Cup.
The former Argentine international defended, moreover, that his compatriot and Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo share the same 'secret' to achieving success. That is, the "mentality" they present, on and off the field.
"He's a martian. I didn't play until I was 40 because my knees wouldn't let me, but I understand his mentality. If you can see that he can, why stop? We all play because we have a goal, and his goal is to be the best in the world. world... forever", he sentenced.
