Lionel Messi is often described as the greatest footballer ever but his rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo has always triggered a debate as a section of football fans believe the Juventus star is a few steps ahead of him.
But for Real Madrid legend Guti, Messi has more talent than Ronaldo.
Despite playing alongside Ronaldo for one season at Real Madrid, Guti believes Messi has such ‘a beastly success in every game.’
Guti, who is currently the manager of Spanish club Almeria, told Movistar Plus and cited by Goal that Ronaldo is more of a goalscorer and Real Madrid have missed him but rated Messi better than the Portuguese.
He said: “I only know one player who has such a beastly success in every game. And it is Messi.
“Every time he goes out to the field something happens. The others have many ups and downs.
“It is true that I recently tweeted that I chose Messi, but I value highly what Cristiano has done. He is a great player.
“Messi has more talent, Cristiano is more of a goalscorer, more ambition, he is a self-made player.
“It is incredible that in the era of Messi, he has been able to win five Ballons d'Or. He has been massively important, as he showed at Real Madrid.
“He has been an important factor, above all for his goalscoring productivity. Especially in big games. Real Madrid have missed Ronaldo.”
