Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed why he and Lionel Messi can be regarded as the greatest footballers ever.
While Messi has spent his entire professional career at Barcelona, Ronaldo has spent time at Sporting Lisbon, Manchester United, Real Madrid and currently Juventus.
Ronaldo has lifted the Champions League on five occasions – four times at Real Madrid and once at Manchester United, while Messi has won Europe’s premium competition on four occasions at Barcelona.
“The difference with Messi is that I played for several clubs and won the Champions League with different clubs,” Ronaldo told DAZN.
“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.”
