Messi names CR7 above Top 5 football players

Messi heaps praise on Cristiano as he names Top 5 World Players

March 29, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
'La Pulga' had a classy gesture for his Portuguese colleague during an interview with an Argentine radio station.

If you could find a phrase to describe Messi's recent words towards Cristiano Ronaldo, you should have to use : "class act".

Even if the press and fans from both sides tried to create a rivalry between them, both footballers have praised each other in recent interviews. Such was Messi's case in an interview with Club Octubre Radio in Argentina, where he revealed his desire to compete against the Portuguese footballer.

"It was nice to see Cristiano playing in La Liga. It was prestigious to play here with him around,"Messi said about his so-called rival.

Then, when asked about who were the top 5 players in the world, he placed Cristiano Ronaldo above the rest, right next to him.

"Excluding Cristiano and myself, I'd choose Neymar, Mbappé, Hazard, Luis Suárez and Kun Agüero," Messi added.

Messi will evaluate if he is ready to play the Catalan Derby on Saturday, following his departure from the Argentine National Team due to a problem in his groin.
