Iniesta Responds To Ronaldo's 'Best Ever' Remarks

Andres Iniesta Responds To Cristiano Ronaldo's 'Best Ever' Remarks

By Kurt Buckerfield - Dec 14, 2017 01:26 PM @KurtLaduma

FC Barcelona veteran Andres Iniesta has responded to Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's assertion that he is the best player in the history of football.

Barca Star Hits Back At Ronaldo's 'Best Ever' Comments

The Portuguese recently drew level with Lionel Messi on five Ballons d'Or, and went on to claim that he is the best footballer in history.

Iniesta has since insisted that although he respects Ronaldo's opinion, he feels his Argentine teammate holds that title.

"I don't know if they were exactly (Ronaldo's) words," Iniesta told reporters, according to Sport.

"Each person is free to their own opinions and feelings. A player at his level, with five Ballons d'Or, obviously he is among the best.

"From there, we all have our own preferences. Mine is clear. I'd go with my teammate, with Leo, for all that he's represented and still represents. But everyone has their own tastes.

"The winners of these awards are always fair, I don't think it's unfair that Ronaldo has won five. They're voted for. After that, everyone has their own preferences."

Ronaldo Breaks 71yo La Liga Record

Messi has scored 18 goals in 23 games for the Blaugrana so far this season, while Ronaldo has hit the back of the net 15 times in 20 matches for Real.

Who do you prefer between Messi and Ronaldo? Let us know in the comments section below.

You are 100% correct boss! Whether people like it or not, Ronaldo's work qualities him the talk and the self proclaimed title!

You put it nicely there Mr Iniesta, "everyone has their own tastes". And my taste is that from Man City Called De Bryune. #Khosi4life

so many world greatest players such as Maradona,Rivaldo,Zidane,Ronald inho etc.. that they never regard themselves as best players of all time but now this penalty specialists see himself as best player ever just because he equals ballon'dor with Messi..I'll tell you one thing this player is nothing but arrogant,big headed and stupid.

Scoring 18 in 23 games sounds human, not this thing of scoring 23 in 18 games.

messi the best in all,not with tap ins,but with assists,dribbling ,scoring and also attitude he is not self proclaim ''best in the world'' and he doesn't need to tell us that we all can see we our naked eyes.
