Romario: “Vitor Roque is the most complete striker in Brazil”

Vitor Roque is on the way back from an ankle injury that has sidelined him for two months in Brazil. The 18-year-old striker, signed by Barcelona from Athletico Paranaense has been described by former Barcelona striker Romario as “the most complete striker in Brazil”.

In an interview for the programme Boleiragem – Romario said – in words quoted by MD: “I don’t think comparisons should be made between today’s strikers in relation to Ronaldo and myself.”

Romario, in the 1993-94 La Liga campaign promised he would score 30 goals for Barça and he scored 30 goals; Ronaldo later contributed 47 goals in the 1996-97 season, his only campaign with the Blaugrana after making the move from Dutch outfit PSV.
