Cristiano Ronaldo in an interview with DAZN has aimed to provide an argument for why he has been a better player than Barcelona's Lionel Messi.
Messi and the Juventus forward are constantly compared as two of the best of this generation, and perhaps of all time, but Ronaldo believes that he is more of a champion:
“The difference between me and him is that I went to different clubs and won the Champions League. I have been Champions League top scorer six times in a row.
“There are many players who have won the Cup five times.
“I identify myself with this competition.
