Ronaldo's agent heaps praise on the Portuguese, despite Messi's superiority
- Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes praised the Portuguese player after Juventus knocked out Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.
- Mendes sees his client as the best footballer ever.
- Well, he must have simply forgotten about Leo Messi.
"He is the best player in the history of the game and he proved it against Atletico Madrid. He is an alien, he made the difference in England and Spain and the same is happening in Italy," said Ronaldo's agent, referring to Ronaldo's treble that took his new team past Atletico Madrid.
Leo Messi, meanwhile, has had a much better, team-supporting performance at Camp Nou on Wednesday as the little Argentinian scored twice and made two further assists, once again proving himself an all-around team player.
Messi progressed from the youth set-up of Barcelona and is considered the best with five Ballon d'Or on par with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 31-year-old scored 588 goals and contributed 268 assists in all competitions, having 50 assists more than his arch-rival, Cristiano Ronaldo - a living proof the Argentinean is head and shoulders above his arch-rival and more of a team player that the Portuguese No.7.
Messi's recent exploits came in Barca's 5-1 routing of Lyon on Wednesday, helping the team easing into the last eight, the draw of which is set to take place very soon.
