Even The silence means something! how can a Barcelona player miss the choice between Messi and Ronaldo?

Before, Catalan Barcelona) derby on Sunday, Barcelona’s Andre Gomes was put on the spot during an interview in which he as asked who was better, Messi or Ronaldo, something that the Portuguese refused to divulge after having almost come close to playing alongside countryman Cristiano at Real Madrid, he now plies his club trade with Lionel Messi and he’s enjoying every minute.

Marca English has provided the quotes of this international Portuguese who plays for Catalonya side, FCBarcelona when talking to Catalunya Radio’s ’Tot Costa’ programme."

"I signed for Barcelona, something that was very important for me and for my family,"

I was very excited, I am playing at the moment and I am enjoying it."At times Barcelona is the best team in the world.

"The question of Messi or Ronaldo is a delicate one for Gomes, but one which he answered perfectly."I do not like to compare them out of respect," he continued."I will never answer it.

I’m Portuguese and I have affection for Cristiano, as much as I do for Messi, who is my teammate at Barcelona."Style of play at the Camp Nou is different from what the former Valencia man is used to, but he’s willing to work hard to ensure he remains a starter for his club.

"The squad is very strong and we all want to play," he said."I have to learn and make fewer mistakes, and be prepared in case there is an opportunity to enter the starting XI.

"It has its complications, Barcelona is structured, its way of playing has been defined for years and the players come and go, but in the end the philosophy remains."In Valencia it was different, and I have had to adapt my characteristics to those of this team."Playing alongside Andres Iniesta has been one of Gomes’ standout moments for the Catalans so far.

"People love him very much, he is a phenomenon," Gomes noted. "He is above everyone. As a person he’s exemplary and on the pitch he does something when you least expect it."I’m a lucky man to play with them [Iniesta, Messi, Ronaldo].

This silence may reveal that his choice would put him in trouble, to say Messi is to engage in conflict with his country mates, Portuguese and to say Ronaldo might blacken his image in Catalunya.
