Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho heaped praise on Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona's Lionel Messi after yesterday's 2-2 draw.

Mourinho was asked who should win the Ballon d'Or between the two.

"I do not want to worry too much about that. I think it should be forbidden to say who the best player in the world because these two are from another planet. I would like my player to win because he is champion of the best league in the world, but I think they're both fantastic players," said Mourinho.
