Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo compared by Brazil legend Ronaldo

LIONEL MESSI and Cristiano Ronaldo have been compared by Brazil legend Ronaldo.

The two footballing superstars have dominated the sport for the last 10 years, winning five Ballon d’Ors apiece in that time.

There has often been much discussion about which player is the better as they battle for that number one tag.

But before they came along it was Ronaldo of Brazil that dominated the headlines as he led the Real Madrid attack and help his country to two World Cups.

And now he has been asked to compare Messi with his namesake and he says it is a tough one to call.

However, he did admit that he was gutted to have never played with the Barcelona and Real figureheads.

'It's very difficult to answer because both are very good, better than everyone else,' Ronaldo said.

'I wish I could have played with one of them.


'Choosing is very difficult, I am almost in agreement with those who voted for the Ballon d'Or.

“The one who has won each year has just about deserved it more than the other.

'Both are spectacular.'
