Barcelona Hit Back At Cristiano Ronaldo's 'Best Ever' Comments
FC Barcelona have clapped back at Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's claims that he is the best player in the history of football.
After winning his fifth Ballon d’Or last week, the Portuguese made a bold remark that he is the greatest footballer ever – a claim that has many talking.
A spokesman for Barca’s board of directors, Josep Vives, has now responded to the claims made by the 32-year-old Portuguese forward, insisting that Lionel Messi holds that status.
"Respect to the Ballon d'Or and to Cristiano Ronaldo," he said, according to Marca.
"We have always considered him a great player and a great competitor.
"But here at the Camp Nou, we can see the best player in history every 15 days, which is Messi."
Ronaldo has now won as many Ballons d'Or as Messi – five – and will be looking to add to his 14 goals of the campaign so far at the FIFA Club World Cup this week.
