Roberto Carlos Weighs In On Messi v Ronaldo Debate
Real Madrid and Brazil legend Roberto Carlos has weighed on the ongoing debate on who is a better footballer between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo recently won his fifth Ballon d'Or to go level with the FC Barcelona superstar for the individual accolade.
However, the former Los Blancos full-back claims the Portuguese forward has advantage over his competitors.
"These days, when you talk about football, you talk about Neymar, Messi and Ronaldo," Carlos told Fox Sports .
"Cristiano has worked to improve. When you talk about the Ballon d'Or or any other prize, it's not just any person who votes, it's people who know football, who follow the stats of the players and pick the best in the world.
"I watch him train every day and the way he works is exciting. He wants to improve every day.
"That's the difference with Messi. Leo is a phenomenon, we never talk about Neymar... but that side of Cristiano, of training, professionalism, focus, motivation, success... Cristiano has an advantage over all the others."
