Cristian Cuti Romero commented on Lionel Messi, Lisandro Martínez and watching FC Barcelona.
Cuti Romero was one of the standout defenders in the Premier League last season. He has become an integral part in the Tottenham Hotspur team and the Argentina national team.
Still only 24 years old, Romero has won the Copa America and the Finalissima with Argentina. Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Romero was asked about Lionel Messi. Here is what he had to say:
“Messi, for me, is a different class of player. I haven’t seen a player like him in my life. He does incredible things and I don’t think there is any comparison. It’s brilliant to play with him.”
Romero spoke about Lisandro Martínez:
“Today, the best defender for me is Virgil van Dijk, always, and Lisandro Martínez from Manchester United.
“For me, they are the best in the Premier League.”
He also spoke about studying FC Barcelona when he was younger:
“Their team that won everything.
“I always loved watching that team because I loved to watch Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique, and also Javier Mascherano when he played there. Those three were beautiful to watch.”
