Messi refused to be drawn on Ronaldo comparisions


Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has told media that he is only focused on himself and his own personal achievements, despite constant comparisons between him and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

The pair are constantly scrutinised by many pundits and football fans as to which is better, as both Messi and Ronaldo continue to break record after record in the club game.

The pair are expected to be the frontrunners for the 2014 Ballon D’Or, and both are closing in on Real legend Raul’s record of 71 Champions League goals, with Ronaldo just one goal ahead of the Barcelona star on 69 after netting against Ludogorets.

But Messi has said that he has no interest in that, and that he is only focussed on winning silverware for Barcelona, who he joined as a 13 year old.

The Argentine was at the presentation of Gillette becoming sponsors with Barcelona, and told press “”I do not know what my place in the history of the game will be, neither do I even think about it. I’m just focused on continually improving and winning more.

“I’m not competing against Cristiano or anyone. I just do my job — I want to win titles.”

The first El Clasico of the season is in three weeks time.


  1. Messi is de bst ever,Ronaldo is lyk an oiled machine only whn he has players doin dirty job 4 him 2finish up.nowonder why cried lyk a spoilt pred whn di maria left.true champions adopt!

  2. My two favourites. Messi was my favourite b4 2008 when ronaldo was re-born. Now they are both my favs. But i’m for Real now: so ronaldo’s got that added insurance. Still i like barca when they really play and win (not when they pass the ball away from the goal line or lack ideas or speed).

  3. Leo is simple play, comparing with ronaldo, I think that’s wrong, I think they should pair CR7 with people the master Ronaldinho, messi simply the best in messi’s style. Single footballer can’t mark messi, y single player can mark CR7 out of pitch, ronaldo can’t even dribble like messi,

  4. Messi is gifted.while ronaldo got his skills tru development.even if messi stops training he will still be d disrespect to ronaldo.the 2 of them are the best in the world

  5. RONALDO is the best player on de planet.much more better than messi. RONALDO is all round n has also been consistent for 10 years. there’s non lyk him.

  6. messi doesn’t want to compete because he knows that he will lose .nowadays messi is doing nothing in Barcelona but Ronaldo is in his best shape
