This player is currently Real Madrid right-back, Dani Carvajal. Carvajal has played in some important Clasico games against FC Barcelona and Lionel Messi. He has played at Real Madrid for almost his entire football career, and he knows well about El Clasico's rivalry. He also knows the debate between the GOAT of football, as many Real Madrid fans and players choose Ronaldo while Barca fans and players choose Messi. Carvajal didn't choose one specifically despite being teammates with Ronaldo. He gives a respectful answer that compliments both players on their strengths in football.

In an interview with Daniel Habif, Carvajal was asked who was better between Messi and Ronaldo. Carvajal said, "Messi or Ronaldo? I put them on the same level. I don't prefer one over the other. They are monsters in every sense of the word, and I could not choose neither this nor that. I think they are very different... Messi is a player who is able to go back, receive the ball, and create an attack, and he can participate in the play and create... Cristiano is a monster at scoring goals, attacking the area, and finishing. If they were playing together, they would have been a bomb, and it would have been interesting to see."

Dani Carvajal gets praise for his performance against Girona yesterday in Real Madrid's 4-0 win

Dani Carvajal is usually a right-back, but because Real Madrid suffered from many injuries in the center-back position, Carvajal had to play as a center-back with Tchouameni. Carlo Ancelotti praised his performance as he helped get a clean sheet. Ancelotti says, "I asked Carvajal if he'd like to be a right or left center back. He said he doesn't care. Tchouameni felt more comfortable on the right, that's why I put him on the left. He looked like he played 400 matches there!"
