Messi vs Ronaldo, and who is the best amongst these two is like a never ending debate. The world has been divided into two halves. One-half who think that Ronaldo is the best player in the world. And then there is the other half, who think that Messi is better because his talents are Godly.

But while most fans are constantly arguing and debating on this topic, both Messi and Ronaldo have a lot of respect for each other. And this has been the case for a very long time.

Ronaldo has scored 54 goals this year in all competitions

Ronaldo has had another wonderful season, winning the Champions League with Real Madrid for the second time in a row. He also won the La Liga title with Real after five long years. And the Portuguese is all set to beat Messi to the Ballon d’Or this year. But rather than cringing and complaining about it, the Argentine has showered praises on Ronaldo.

The Barcelona man has a goals tally of 56 this season from 55 matches.

Messi has come out and said that Ronaldo is a player of many qualities. And that is the reason why he keeps on improving year after year. Messi also had a thing or two to say about the press. He claimed that the so-called rivalry between the two of them has been created and hyped by the press. The Argentine maintains that he has no problems with Ronaldo both on and off the pitch. And that they no such great rivalry.

Lionel Messi is currently in Australia with the Argentine national team where they Brazil in a friendly match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. And Ronaldo, on the other hand, has joined the Portuguese national team as Fernando Santos’ men are set to play a World Cup Qualifier match against Latvia.
