Asensio Picks Between Messi & Ronaldo

Marco Asensio Picks Between FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi & Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo

By Kurt Buckerfield - Mar 22, 2018 05:45 PM @KurtLaduma

Real Madrid starlet Marco Asensio has named who he thinks is the better player between his superstar teammate Cristiano Ronaldo and FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

Ronaldo Extends LaLiga Record Over Messi

The age-old debate as to who the best is between Ronaldo and Messi is one that many footballers have given their opinion on, and now Asensio has weighed in on the argument.

The Spaniard, who has scored many sensational goals since his breakthrough at Real, was recently asked to pick between the two superstars, and his answer was perhaps unsurprising.

"Every year, Cristiano is at an impressive level," he told AS.

"Messi and Cristiano are at a great level. But I can only say Cristiano, who is on my side."

Asensio has been playing alongside Ronaldo since the beginning of last season, and has scored goals that have reminded supporters of the strikes the Portuguese used to score consistently several years back.

Messi Responds To Conte's Comments

Many have tipped the Spaniard to be a future challenger for the Ballon d'Or, an award that Messi and Ronaldo have won five times each.

Do you think Asensio only chose Ronaldo because he is his teammate? Let us know in the comments section below.

Why barcelona players, legends, and fans are so rude and full of insults towards Madrid team? I only know Ramos who passionately hate barcelona but never throw insults towards them. Even here in SA barcelona fans always insulting everything associated with Madrid.

It's not easy for a young Madrid player to choose Messi for obvious reasons(same goes for Barca players), but in this case I do feel that Asensio is not fully convinced that Ronaldo is the best, hence his responce of saying "because he's on my side". One day when he's no longer on his side, he will then easily confess that Messi is the GOAT.

First of all Asensio doesn't speak English. Secondly, SL editors are forced to spice up articles so as to generate many comments from bloggers' debates. I mean, in your right senses do yo think Asensio answered that he chooses Cr7 because he is on his side? Is it not an insult compared to picking Messi?

what I actually know between barca and real is sense of respect its rare to hear a madrista legend or player talking ill about messi but football followers knows the likes of Xavi and pique how hateful their are toward the king so ascension is speaking as a professional not a emotional pig like barca ppl thats all...#kingCR7rules

"Messi and Cristiano are at a great level. But I can only say Cristiano, who is on my side." Well this settles it, Asensio only says it because he might anger Ronaldo

He adtmits it himself....his opinion is not neutral. But watching Asensio play, I have no doubt in my mind that his idol is Messi. Not that he plays at the same level as Messi, but he's cleary trying to be him.
