Romario, a Brazilian football icon, claims to be superior to Lionel Messi and provides evidence in a video.
Romario, a former Barcelona and Brazilian footballer, asserts that he surpasses Lionel Messi, the Argentine superstar and World Cup champion.
Both Romario and Messi made a significant impact during their time with Barcelona and are highly respected at Camp Nou.
While Messi is widely considered to be the greatest player in Barcelona’s history and in the sport as a whole, Romario holds a different opinion. Despite his impressive scoring record, Romario amassed 55 goals in 70 appearances for Brazil’s national team and a remarkable number of goals throughout his club and international career.

Despite Rolando’s impressive record of 608 career goals and Messi closely following with 573, there is still a chance for the two to surpass Rosario’s official goal count of 743 (although Romario claims to have scored more than 1,000). Romario, who played 65 games for Barcelona and scored 39 goals while also providing 11 assists, believes that his versatility makes him a superior player to the World Cup-winning Argentine captain. He stated, “I am better than he is in my position, while he is the best in his.”
Romario chose Andoni Zubizarretta as the team’s goalkeeper over Victor Valdes and selected Dani Alves as the right-back instead of Albert Ferrer. For the defensive midfielder position, he picked Pep Guardiola over Sergio Busquets.
