- Cafu believes Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are incomparable
- The Brazilian legend won many trophies during his playing days
- The 50-year-old won the World Cup with Brazil in 1994 and 2002
Cafu has weighed into the conversation about who is the better player between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The World Cup winner with Brazil in 2002 has faced Ronaldo at club level during AC Milan's clash with Man United.
On the other hand, Cafu and Messi never crossed paths before he fully retired from the game in 2007.
In Cafu's honest opinion, the former Sao Paulo right-back could not differentiate the genius of the Portuguese and Argentine who have won nine ballon d'Or's between them.
"We’re talking about the two powers of world football. They’ve been at the top for 15 years.
"One has won six awards, the other five. It’s so hard to pick between them. They’re both magnificent players," quoted in Goal.
The 50-year-old has a successful spell in football winning two World Cup trophies, Champions League, Europa League and two league titles with Milan and Roma.
