The outspoken Portuguese coach appeared as a guest pundit on beIN SPORTS show recently, and gave a diplomatic answer when asked about the "Messi vs Ronaldo" debate, explaining that he feels it is "unfair" to compare the two superstars.

"I think it is unfair to both of them when someone says one is better than the other one. I think they are just different," he answered.

"The only thing that I can say is that when I had Ronaldo on my side, I was a very happy man. And when I had to play against Messi, I had to think a lot to try and help my team to have chances to succeed.

"The thing to admire is the number of years that they have stayed at the top. To win once, it can happen. To win and win and win and win and win is much more difficult. As a player, you can appear like a hurricane and then disappear.

"These two guys have been there for 10 years and everything is about them until the moment they decide enough is enough and other people can raise the bar."
