Former Paris Saint Germain player Ander Herrera frowns at negative reports that has been written about Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Herrera, who is now playing for Spanish side Athletic Bilbao believes these players needs to be appreciated for what they have done and what they are still doing.

“Sometimes I see some papers or journalist disrespect these two legend of football, we have to thank them for all they’ve given to football to us as fans. Those Clasicos they used to play against each other. We have to thank them for what they’ve done and what they’re still doing,” Herrera said.

“Personally it was a dream playing alongside him [Messi], training with him was a dream come true,” Herrera added.

“After I know Messi personally, the facts were better than the expectations — always trying to help the team, respecting everyone, [he’s] the best player in history and you see how humble he is.

“And Cristiano, for all of us as United lovers it was perfect that he came back to the club. He’s scoring goals, he’s back at Manchester where everything started.”

The defended Cristiano Ronaldo after the Portuguese has received criticism for his slow start of the season.

“Top scorer of the team, one of the top scorers in Europe. Probably not going to score 50 goals every season, of course, but he’s still fighting, scoring, taking care of himself every day, every single training [session], so respect.

“Now, probably, you have to control the charge of him in terms of training and games, you can’t make him play every single game of the season, in the big moments he will be there.

“There is one thing you cannot lie [about], the stats. And Ronaldo … always putting the face to fight, to score, to run, to take the responsibility of the team — for me there is no space for criticism with Cristiano or with Leo.

“Of course everyone’s going to talk about them because they’re probably the two best players in the history of football.”
