According to Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, the only difference between him and Lionel Messi is that the Portuguese won the Champions League with different clubs.
The comparison between Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has been going on forever.
And today Ronaldo said there’s only one difference between him and the Argentinean: the Portuguese have won the UEFA Champions League with different clubs.
“The difference with Messi is that I played for several clubs and won the Champions League with different clubs,” Ronaldo said as quoted by Football Italia.
“I was the 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 identify myself with this tournament,” he added.
“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.
Ronaldo explained: “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.”
