Juventus captain, Giorgio Chiellini has said that fellow teammate, Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona captain, Lionel Messi are like tennis stars, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.
The defender said that Ronaldo and Messi are both out of this world, adding that both players are somewhat comparable to Federer and Nadal.
Chiellini said this while reacting to his side’s Serie A 1-1 draw against Juventus on Friday night.
Sasa Lukic had given Torino the lead in the 17th minute before Ronaldo scored a late header in the second half to hand Max Allegri’s men a point at Allianz Stadium.
“We’re lucky to play with Cristiano and live in this age of two-star players [Ronaldo and Messi],” Chiellini was quoted by NDTV Sports as saying after Juventus’ draw against Torino
“They’re somewhat comparable to (Roger) Federer and (Rafael) Nadal. They are both out of this world, one seems stronger one day and then the other replies.”
