How Ronaldo Responded To 'Messi Is Better Than You' Taunts At Man Utd

How Cristiano Ronaldo Responded To 'Lionel Messi Is Better Than You' Taunts At Manchester United

By Kurt Buckerfield - Sep 10, 2018 09:01 PM @KurtLaduma

Former Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has always backed himself as the best player in world football, and it has now reportedly been revealed how he responded to teammates at Manchester United who said Lionel Messi was better than him.

'Messi Scored 12 Goals In Training One Day, But We Let Him Go'

Former England striker Peter Crouch recently released his highly-anticipated autobiography called How To Be A Footballer, in which he shares some funny anecdotes and talks about his professional career in general.

In the book, the 37-year-old revealed a story ex-Red Devil Rio Ferdinand shared with him about former United attacker Ronaldo, who his then colleagues would tease by saying he is not as good as Messi.

"Rio Ferdinand would tell us stories about how Cristiano Ronaldo would stand in front of the mirror naked, running his hand through his hair, and say, 'Wow. I'm so beautiful!'"

"The other United players would try to wind him up. 'Whatever. Leo Messi is a better player than you.'

"And he would shrug his shoulders and smile again. 'Ah yes. But Messi does not look like this…'"

Ronaldo has been compared to the Argentine from early on in his career, and the rivalry seemingly intensified when he moved to Real in 2009.

'FIFA Awards Loses Credibility Because Messi Is Not There'

The two forwards have since won five Ballons d'Or each, and might challenge one another for the prize again later this year.

Do you think his rivalry with Messi has been a constant source of motivation for Ronaldo? Let us know in the comments section below.

Messi has beaten all the EPL, Seria A, Bundesliga giants, does people want him to play against Cardiff, Crystal Palace, Parma, Chievo, New Castle, West Ham for him to convince us?

The best players wants to play in LaLiga, recently England were beaten by Spain. We can't even compare La Liga with the other poor leagues. I am a big fan of EPL but LaLiga is much much better than all the other leagues in the world.

@vijjox, I think people must stop saying LaLiga is not competitive. We (Football fanatics) like EPL a lot but the stats talks. Last season Liverpool couldn't beat Sevilla and they lost the final to Real Madrid. Man U were knocked out by Sevilla, Arsenal were beaten by Atletico Madrid. Man U were twice beaten by Barca ... What is best about EPL? The branding, the marketing , the popular teams, etc...

If we can get all their achievements in La Liga, UCL & other prestigious cups then I'll agree. For now I see envy towards CR7.

Like it or not, Messi shines in LaLiga (In a Box) .... CR7 on the other hand shined in Barclays found Messi in his box (LaLiga) and gave him a run for his money, it's not everyday you get someone that will haunt you in your own backyard. CR7 is LEGENDARY and VERSATILE. CR7 is the Best player in the world, Messi we can say his the best LaLiga Player.

"And he would shrug his shoulders and smile again. 'Ah yes. But Messi does not look like this…'" this means that even Ronaldo himself knew that Messi is miles ahead, even his own flesh and blood admitted that Messi is better in his documentary

If messi can be like what he does in laliga to the other leagues like premier league i can say he is the best but so far Ronaldo is the best and he proves himself not in laliga only!!! Laliga is weak thats why he scored more than 40 goals per season since he arrived there,!!!

Messi has to prove himself somewhere, yada , yada, yada, who came up with this stupid analogy? The goalposts keep shifting, he is no longer good because of Xavi or Iniesta now that they are gone. You can reinvent your arguments all the time but you just cannot keep a good man down. For me, Messi is the best I've ever seen, before Ronaldinho

"The other United players would try to wind him up. 'Whatever. Leo Messi is a better player than you.' "And he would shrug his shoulders and smile again. 'Ah yes. But Messi does not look like this…'"... The very same CR7 you claim is great also admitted that he's not greater than messi, you cows are pathetic
