Barca Hit Back At Ronaldo's 'Best Ever' Comments

Barcelona Hit Back At Cristiano Ronaldo's 'Best Ever' Comments

By Kurt Buckerfield - Dec 13, 2017 07:28 AM @KurtLaduma

FC Barcelona have clapped back at Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's claims that he is the best player in the history of football.

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

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."  

Real Agree To Sign Neymar In 18 Months?

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.

Do you agree with Ronaldo’s recent comments? Let us know in the comments section below.

Let's put CR7 vs. Messi to bed: Who you believe is the best depends on which club you support or personal preference for neutrals. The two camps will always use statistics to "prove" their man is best, but stats can NEVER tell the full story.

Both Messi and Ronaldo are good, the difference is Messi is humble and Ronaldo is self-righteous

Idiot are busy suggesting that Messi must go to play for lower teams. Messi's talent was spotted by a big team when he was a teenager because he is the best footballer in the planet, unlike other cows who needed to go through all the small teams trying to prove himself. Barcelona will play Chealea in champions league, any cow who wish to see the king proving himself against the team from other league must watch the game and stop talking nonsense.

@Dmotiv Messi is already at the top and need not to go back to the lower league to prove his greatness. You claim that Ronaldo did in Portugal, England and now is doing it in LA Liga, it's true because he was still trying to reach the genius ' level. In a nutshell, it is not necessary for him to prove himself there because, he would be stooping low. He will not go there because only those who failed or warmed the bench in LA Liga plays in England even Ronaldo don't want to go there. LEVELS NDODA, levels.

Did Barca really have to reply to Ronaldo's statement? Seems very childish of them

I respect Ronaldo as a footballer, as boisterous as he is, deep down he knows that he will always come second to Messi. Ronaldo is always trying to match the Barcelona star where as the the GOAT competes against himself. Ronaldo 's hardwok is paying off, however the genius will always surpass the hardworker's effort.
