Barcelona, as a team, has known many great periods over the years, enjoying in each generation different superstars who led it to unforgettable achievements.
Naturally, there are those who compare the different periods, and that was the case in the interview that Romario gave to ESPN.
The great former striker, who won the World Cup with the Brazilian team in 1994, starred in the Barcelona uniform between 1993-1995 and was exceptional.
Há exatos 29 anos, eu entrava em campo pelo Barcelona para goalarmos o Real Madrid no Camp Nou.
⚽ ⚽ ⚽ Quem lembra?
O jogo terminou 5⃣x0⃣ pro Barça e, desses 5, eu marquei 3. O nosso treinador da época era o fodástico e brillante Johan Cruyff.

As mentioned, he was asked which Barcelona team was better, the one he played under Johan Cruyff or the one of Pep Guardiola?
His answer was not unequivocal, until it reached the personal level.
"Messi and I are different players. In his position he is better, but in my position I was better than him," Romario said without blinking.
The two, Messi and Romario, who each in turn humiliated Real Madrid and each scored unimaginable goals with their wisdom, will always be remembered as Barça legends, but while Messi juggled it for 17 years, the Brazilian was a "guest" for only two years.
As mentioned, it does not prevent him from declaring who he thought was number 1.
