Mourinho: Ronaldo superior to Messi

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho feels Cristiano Ronaldo deserves to win the Ballon d’Or and says he is on another level from Lionel Messi.

Mourinho said El Clasico between Real and Messi’s Barcelona both players were from another planet, but he has now suggested Ronaldo is ahead of the Argentine forward.

“It would be a crime if Cristiano didn’t win the Ballon d’Or. If Messi is the best in the world, it’s only because Cristiano is from another planet,” Mourinho told A Bola.

“He wasn’t born on Madeira, but on Mars. So he’s not from planet Earth. That’s why he’s the best player in the universe.

“If Cristiano does not win it this year, it has to do with his image. He doesn’t sell himself well and isn’t always a nice guy.”

Mourinho claimed it is harder for Ronaldo to excel than it is for Lionel Messi, as the Portugal international has not been surrounded by the same team-mates for years.

“Things are much harder for Cristiano than they are for Messi. Messi grew up with his current team and team-mates,” he said.

“Cristiano, on the other hand, came here from England and arrived at a struggling team. He has had to develop in a team that wasn’t the finished article yet.”

Mourinho is just full of rubbish talk comparing Ronaldo to great Messi. Messi is far ahead of Ronaldo in all departments of footall game. Anyway, what do you expect from a Coach who took forever to achieve what Guardiola achieved in the twinkle of an eye.

Mourinho is a good manager, but he’s not good at humility. Messi is the best in the world today (but not all time).

c.ronaldo is a good footballer but messi is inborn.ronaldo is a selfish footballer, he always want to score alone without minding his teammates standing in good position waiting for his passes,but messi scores,dribbles,create chances for his teammates and performs magics with the ball thereby impressing spectators.he deserves what ever football title for today

Well, that’s Jose for you. He would stop at nothing to double-speak once it’s in his favour. He’s got a huge admiration for Messi, and truly never likes Ronaldo that much because they’re both ego-bloated blokes. I guess he was tryna be xenophobic and pander to the whims of patriotism. But in truth, Messi remains a more scintillating player than Ronaldo!
