FC Barcelona Star Hits Back At Cristiano Ronaldo's 'Best Ever' Comments
An FC Barcelona star has responded to Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo's claims that he is the best footballer in history.
After winning his fifth Ballon d'Or recently, the Portuguese boldy stated that he is the best player to have ever played the beautiful game.
Barca midfielder Ivan Rakitic gave his opinion on Ronaldo's claim after the Catalan club's 2-0 win over Villarreal on Sunday night, saying the Portuguese is unlucky to be in the same era as Lionel Messi.
"You know my opinion," the Croatian said, according to Sport.
"With all the respect in the world for Cristiano Ronaldo, he's up against the greatest in the history of the game.
"I congratulate him for winning the Ballon d'Or but, for me, Leo is unique. There's only one No. 1.
"Those behind him are unfortunate enough to have coincided with him."
Messi has scored 18 goals in 23 matches so far for the Blaugrana this season, while Ronaldo has hit the back of the net 14 times in 19 clashes for Real.
