The former Inter Milan and Los Blancos striker, who is widely considered by many to be the best No. 9 of all time, was asked last year to name five players he enjoys watching, and he named FC Barcelona's Messi as his first pick, but completely overlooked Ronaldo.

"Messi, of course, he is number one," Ronaldo told Spanish publication AS.

"It is a talent that we will take 20 or 30 years to see something similar.

"I also like (Mohamed) Salah, (Eden) Hazard, Neymar, and I love watching him play, of course (Kylian) Mbappe."

The 2002 FIFA World Cup winner also discussed the comparisons between him and Mbappe at the time, and admitted there are similarities between them.

"It says a lot of people who look like me, has a lot of speed, finishes well, has great movements, hits excellent with both legs, has an incredible stride," he added.
