Ghanaian forward Kevin Prince Boateng has made his choice on who is the best footballer between Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The Hertha Berlin forward opted for Ronaldo citing his hard work and longevity as the reasons why he will remain a motivation for young players.
He said, “For a young player, Cristiano must be the best example, because he works hard, and he also has talent, of course”.
“But Quaresma or Nani were also even more talented when they were young. But he works like crazy. He is so passionate when it comes to football that he always wants to be the best,” he added.
Boateng then went on to make acknowledge Messi by saying, “That’s why, if you’re young, you should want to be that. It should be like that for all footballers… except for Messi” while adding that “because he is already incredible. He does things that no one else can do. That’s why I see him as if he were out of this world. That’s why I think that, in this world, Cristiano is the one who rules and Messi is above”.
