The hero of the Champions League attacked the stars: Messi is a fake provocateur, Ronaldo an egoist!
He does not take a napkin, his work evokes stormy reactions around the world.
Former football goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek, who went through Liverpool and Real Madrid in his career, spoke derogatorily about the biggest stars on the planet, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, in his book Un camimo no real. Above all, the jewel of Barcelona caught it nicely from a 42-year-old Pole.
"Messi is a fake provocateur. Everyone considers him a quiet, decent man. But he is only seemingly decent. When he launched Pepe and Sergio Ramos, they couldn't believe at first what kind of vulgarities were falling from him, "Dudek said, adding that a similar characteristic fits Coach Pep Guardiola. While sitting on the bench in Barcelona, during the heated battles with Real he constantly provoked the players and the White Ballet bench.
In part, he unflatteringly described Ronaldo, his former teammate at San Bernabeu, where Dudek spent four seasons. "Cristiano is arrogant, selfish. But deep down is a real guy. I think that's how people perceive it. He would rather win two one and score a goal than the team to win five zeros and he would not score, "adds the 42-year-old Polish guy, who published his book 15 years after the triumph in the Champions League with Liverpool.
After extra time, the match ended in a draw 3: 3, in a subsequent penalty shootout Dudek destroyed the executors of AC Milan and became immortal for Liverpool fans.
The Spanish striker Fernando Torres was also hit indirectly from Dudek. He revealed what the then real partner Iker Casillas told him about him. "When Fernando Torres moved from Liverpool to Chelsea, Casillas told me that he was the most overrated Spanish footballer," notes Dudek.
