Ronaldo names Messi as world's best; snubs CR7

Ronaldo names Messi as the best player in the world; snubs CR7 from Top 5 list

May 30, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The former striker also compared La Liga to the English Premier League, giving a verdict on which league is better.

When he was working as an ambassador for Real Madrid and its brand. Ronaldo used to say that Cristiano Ronaldo was the best footballer out there. Now that he is Real Valladolid's president, he refused to include CR7 in a list of the top 5 players he enjoys watching nowadays.

Speaking in an interview with Spanish newspaper As, the former Brazilian star heaped praise on Lionel Messi's skills as he discussed the aforementioned topic. According to Ronaldo, all of us are blessed to be living in the same era as "La Pulga".

"Messi, of course. He's the best out there. No one in the next 20 or 30 years will have his talent. I also like watching Salah, Hazard, Neymar and of course, Mbappé," Ronaldo said.

The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan striker also referred to the comparisons between him and Kylian Mbappé.

"They say that he looks like me. He's quick, he's got great goalscoring skills, he hits the ball properly with both legs...We have a lot in common, but I have never liked to compare players from different eras, mainly because conditions were not the same for both," Ronaldo added.

The 2002 World Champion with Brazil did compare La Liga to the Premier League, and he handed in his verdict on which league is better.

"I don't see the Premier as a better league than La Liga. Maybe in TV money their clubs do better, but the best players perform in Spain, or at least the better part of them," Ronaldo concluded.
