Endrick shares his opinion on the GOAT footballer

Endrick revealed about his favorite GOAT footballer.

Endrick, a future Real Madrid star, offered his thoughts on the never-ending argument over whether he favors Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi. To the joy of Real Madrid supporters, the current Palmeiras player informed the famous sports media site GOAL that he favors the Portuguese great over his Argentine opponent.

Endrick said: “Messi is a great player, but I’m more of a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo.”

The 17-year-old recently made news when he made his senior football debut for Brazil in a 2-1 loss to Colombia. The teenager is now at Palmeiras and has 12 goals in all competitions for the club this season. In July of next year, he will join Real Madrid for €72 million.

While many followers on Twitter believe the player truly prefers Cristiano Ronaldo over Lionel Messi, others disagree. Many assume Endrick is saying this since he is about to join Real Madrid.

When he made his debut for the squad, he was 17 years and 118 days old. The player started the game against Colombia on the bench and replaced FC Barcelona star Raphinha in the 82nd minute. The 17-year-old had a brief cameo, appearing for only 8 minutes and making only 5 touches. Endrick obtained his first Brazil call-up at the age of 17, becoming the youngest player to do so since Ronaldo Fenómeno.
