Cristiano Ronaldo’s “only problem” is he’s competing against the best player in history – Xavi

Barcelona legend Xavi praised Cristiano Ronaldo but says the Real Madrid‘s star problem is he is competing with Lionel Messi who is ‘the best player in history’.

The two La Liga stars are regarded as two of the greatest players of all time and have almost taken it in turns to be crowned the best players in the world.
Ronaldo Ballon d’Or success earlier this year was the fourth time he had got his hands on the gong, whilst Messi currently has five in his locker.

Supporters are often divided as to who is the better player, but one man who has always been adamant that it is Messi is his former teammate and ex-Barcelona captain, Xavi.
Xavi and Ronaldo have often been involved in a war of words off the field, which first started in 2016 when the former stated that Messi is the best player in the world “for anyone who likes football”.
