Former Ghana starboy Kevin Prince Boateng says he was forced to choose Argentina star Lionel Messi over Cristiano Ronaldo before he was allowed to play for Barcelona.
Boateng, who, during his loan spell at Barcelona won the La Liga Title stated that the club officials told him he had no option than to choose Messi over Ronaldo if he was going to be allowed to
“I supported Hertha Berlin where I was born and then, sorry Blaugrana, Barcelona fans will hate me now but Real Madrid,” he told FIVE UK.
“I couldn’t say that at the press conference because they told me you can’t say that, otherwise we can’t play you. Two years earlier when I was playing for Las Palmas, I said in a press conference that the best player in the world is Ronaldo and in the galaxy Messi,” he added.
“They say who is the best player in the world, you say Messi,” he said, drawing a hilarious reaction from Rio Ferdinand and the crew.
“This is one of the biggest lies because I usually say the truth, but this one I had to lie because I wanted to put on the shirt for one time at Camp Nou,” he added.
