“I remember when I arrived at Barcelona and they asked me who the best player in the world was. I had to say it was Lionel Messi. It was one of the biggest lies of my life,” he said, continuing: “Normally, I’m honest, but I lied because it was the only way to wear the Barcelona shirt. I’m sorry for the Barça fans, but I was always a Real Madrid supporter when I was growing up. I’m a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo.”

Boateng stated that he didn’t have many conversations with the number 10, but he recalled a moment when the rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo was mentioned indirectly.

“Messi was the captain, but he wasn’t very talkative. We talked once in the showers, and he asked me if it was difficult to score goals in Italy, because Ronaldo was there. That demonstrated the rivalry that existed”, added Boateng, recalling that Cristiano Ronaldo I was at Juventus at that time.
