Real Madrid winger Robben: I'm no Messi

Real Madrid winger Arjen Robben has dismissed claims he's a match for Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

The former Chelsea midfielder has been in stunning form since the resumption of the Liga, but says: "Messi is the best player in the world, I cannot say more. He is the best and I am not.

"Of course, it's flattering to be compared with him. But for me, he's from another planet. He's the best, different from the rest."
