Ghana and Hertha Berlin midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng said his mind over the GOAT debate between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi changed after he trained alongside the Argentine star at Barcelona.
The 34-year old only spent six months on loan with the Spanish side. However, he has been impressed by the club’s best ever player Lionel Messi starting from trainings.
Boateng even said Messi was too strong in such away that he thought about retiring from football at a certain time as he felt to know nothing about football.

“I thought about giving up, quitting playing, retiring from football, because I was bad next to Messi “, added the former Black Star.
