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