Juventus captain, Giorgio Chiellini, has given Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi and Manchester United stars, Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba, new names.
Chiellini branded Messi and Ronaldo as ‘aliens’, while he labelled Pogba as ‘LeBron James of football.’
Speaking with The Times, Chiellini said: “Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Lionel] Messi are aliens. Not from the herd.
“I was lucky enough to play with Cristiano at Juventus for three years and seeing him day by day, you understand some of his secrets.
“He works every day to achieve his goals and finds new goals all the time. In the big moments, when you need him, he’s there.
The Italian added: “Pogba is the LeBron James of football. Really, when I see him growing up it is fantastic.”
