One of the world’s best players of all time, Ronaldo Nazario (36 years), who is ambassador of the World Cup next year in Brazil, but also a member of the organizing committee of the tournament from 2014, was present at Madrid, during a promotional tour with FIFA.
Among other things, he commented on the two semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League, involving both Spanish teams where he played, FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.
“I imagine the Champions League final between Barcelona and Real Madrid, and the last to win. And Bayern Munich is a very good team in this season, that has shown it has a great power, with Real Madrid and Barcelona” said Ronaldo.
However, when was asked which player is better, Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, Ronaldo replied without blinking: “Both are very good, but Messi has an extra on his side. I think it’s frustrating for Messi’s colleagues to see that he wins the same awards every year. In my time there were more fights, more competition “, added Ronaldo.
The former striker played in Spain only for FC Barcelona (1996-1997) and Real Madrid (2002-2007). With the Galacticos experienced the greatest satisfaction. He was top scorer in the Primera Division, won three times the award of the Player of the Year (1996, 1997 and 2002), but has a great regret, that never had the chance to win the Champions League.
