Juventus ace Ronaldo: Why I'm better than Messi

Juventus ace Cristiano Ronaldo has explained why he's a superior player to Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Speaking to DAZN, Ronaldo set out the difference between the two.

“The difference with Messi is that I played for several clubs and won the Champions League with different clubs," said Ronaldo.

“I was top scorer in the Champions League six seasons in a row. There aren't many players who won five Champions League trophies, so this is why I feel that I can identity myself with this tournament.

“Messi is an excellent player who will be remembered not just for his Ballon d'Or wins, but also for having improved – like me – year after year.

“I wake up every morning with the idea in my head of training with the objective of achieving something more, not just to earn money. Thank God, I don't lack money, so what I want to earn is a place in the history of football."
