Everton winger Gordon: Why Ronaldo better than Messi

Everton winger Anthony Gordon admits he rates Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of PSG's Leo Messi.

Like many of his generation, Ronaldo is his role model for building a long career.

"He is 36 but his body is better than anyone's because of the way he looks after himself,' says Gordon.

"I do a few of the things he's doing. The game has evolved so much. Everyone is fitter and stronger and quicker. If you can get an edge on the opposition then it's massive. That could be the difference.

"The only thing for me that separates Messi and Ronaldo is that every time there's a big moment, Ronaldo always scores.

"You can't replace that. No matter how skilful Messi is, if I was a coach and I had to win one game, I'd pick Ronaldo."
