'Ronaldo Is The Best In The World, Messi Is Out Of This World'

An African star, who has played against both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, believes that, while he thinks the Portuguese is a perfect example for aspiring footballers, the Argentine is not of this Earth.

Valencia Boss: What Ronaldo Said To Me After Red Card

Asked who he thinks is the better player between Ronaldo and Messi, former Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng said that while he feels the Juventus superstar is the hardest-working player in football, FC Barcelona's talisman has done things no other footballer can do.

"For young people who are football players, Ronaldo should be the best in the world," he told Marca.

"He is the best example to look at because he trains to the fullest and has talent. He works like a madman, he is passionate with everything he does and about football.

"He always wants to be the best. He always wants to be first in everything, so, for a player who is just starting, the one to look at should be him because he is perfect.

"Ronaldo makes all of this happen in this world, but only in this world. In what transcends this world, the best is Messi, because he is incredible, he does things that nobody can do. I do not see him in this world.

"Ronaldo dominates this world and Messi is above everything else."
