Cristiano Ronaldo has stated the difference between him and his great rival, Lionel Messi, hinting why he believes he (CR7) is better.
According to the Juventus Star, he is better because he has played for several clubs, won the leagues and UEFA Champions League five times.
He was quoted by Manchester Evening News saying,
“The difference with Messi is that I played for several clubs and won the Champions League with different clubs.
“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 (the Champions League).
“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.”
