Hristo Stoichkov has spoken about the rivalry between the Argentine and the Portuguese. As a former Local, it is well-positioned to Messi.
Fourteen years after his retirement, Stoichkov was always the word sharp. The old international Bulgarian, legend of Barcelona (1990-1995) is convinced that Messi is the best player of his generation, far ahead of Ronaldo.

In an interview with Sport Express, Stoichkov believes that the number 10 of Barça is superior to Madrid. “Irrevocably the number 1. He always plays for the team. Technically impressive and very intelligent, Messi is always essential.”
The native of Plovdiv place Lionel Messi in the greatest players in the history. “People compare him to Di Stefano, Pele, Cruyff Ronaldo, we compare fair to Messi, it means everything. It will never be the same player as Lionel. And the Real will never be like Barça.” In spite of the third Champions League win in the last four seasons with Merengue, Stoichkov did not want to rent the club of madrid. A corny old tune for nearly 25 years.
