Barcelona legend Xavi Hernadez sumptuous lauded on the “Spectacular” Cristiano Ronaldo but said the Real Madrid Super star’s issue was how “Magnificient” Lionel Messi is, and would likely get significantly more praise if the Argentine forward was not around
The Portuguese star and Barca maestro Messi are routinely compared and always in a discussion and constant debate over the best players ever.
Xavi, a former colleague of Messi’s at Camp Nou, said Ronaldo merited the credit but feels that Ronaldo is behind Lionel Messi.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is a born scorer, a spectacular footballer,” he told A Bola TV.
“The problem is that there is Messi, who for me is the best player in history.
“That is the only problem that Cristiano Ronaldo has, but he is a player who scores and continues to mark an era.”
