Few players in football's history have divided opinion as much as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo but Inter legend Recoba is in no doubt as to who the better player is.

Recoba is widely regarded as being one of the most gifted players of his generation but has reserved praise for a modern great who he believes is in a class of his own. 

Speaking to Perform, the 43-year old shared his opinion that Messi is the best player in the world and that the Argentine forward only gets compared to Cristiano Ronaldo because they play in the same era.

"For me, Messi is the best of all time," Recoba said.

"When it comes to Cristiano, if they had played in different eras, it would be a different story but since they have played in the same era, it is normal for them to be compared.

"Now, if both are playing at the same time and I have to choose a game, I prefer to watch a Messi match."
