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.
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.
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.
