"I love Ronaldo and I love all of the things he stands for, but I have to go for Messi," the Belgian said, according to the Daily Express

"Just the speed of execution… it's talent and I think talent is difficult to overcome when it's that good.

"But I love Ronaldo because I've seen his progression. I've seen him being a player that he was at United and progressed to being so driven and then going to a different way of playing.

"The way he plays now at Juventus is different to the way he played when he was at United, different to how he played when he was at Real Madrid.

"I love that in a player, but Messi is special."
