The Spaniard featured alongside Ronaldo in the early days of his career, but has appeared next to Messi for the past eight years. He praised the former Manchester United star as the best human footballer, but insisted that Messi is so good that it almost seems as if he isn't human.

"I think that they are both amazing," Pique said in an interview with former Old Trafford teammate Rio Ferdinand on BT Sport.

"We are talking about two of the best players, not just in the world but the history of this sport.

"I always said that Messi has some talent that no one has. I mean, he has the ball and his speed controlling the ball. The ball doesn't go two metres far from his foot, it's always there. It's impossible to catch him. This talent I didn't see from anyone.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is such a different player, they are very different. He is tall, strong, he's really complete. He can do anything. He can do goals with the head, free-kicks, penalties, take one on one.

"But for me it's like Messi is not human, but Cristiano is the best of the humans."
