Rivaldo: Ronaldo or Messi? I go with Messi

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Former world player of the year Rivaldo believes Barcelona ace Lionel Messi, not Cristiano Ronaldo, is the best player in the world at the moment.

Ronaldo this week won the FIFA World Player of the Year award to complete a clean sweep of football's top individual honors for 2008.

The Manchester United winger finished well clear of second-placed Messi in the voting, but in the eyes of 1999 winner Rivaldo, it is the Argentinian star who is the best.

The former Nou Camp favourite Rivaldo told El Mundo Deportivo: "Between Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, I go with Messi. For me he is the best in the world.

"Cristiano is very good and you cannot argue about him getting all those awards because he has won a lot of titles and scored 42 goals, but I'm with Leo.

"Leo has a good attitude, can decide games and he is always trying to go forward no matter how many kicks he gets. And all this at only 21 years old.

"Next season, if Leo and Barça continue the same, Leo will win the Champions League, the league and the FIFA World Player of the Year."
