I don’t strive to outperform Ronaldo – Messi

Argentina captain and Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi says Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo is a “great player,” insisting he does not strive to outperform him.

After Ronaldo claimed almost every individual recognitions of 2016, debates have continued over who is better between the two football icons.

Messi is a five-time winner of the Ballon d’Or and some believe he is the best player that has ever existed.

There is an age long rivalry between the two stars, but the Argentine says his desire to shine comes from wanting to perform for Barca and Argentina as opposed to outshining Ronaldo.

Messi told Coach, “There is a mutual respect.

“I view him as a great player who has achieved great things because that is exactly what he is.

“My motivation, though, has always come from wanting to do well for Barcelona and Argentina, and the fans.”
