- The Serbian indicates that his son feels like Ronaldo is a better player than Messi.
- However, he’s praised both their abilities for retaining such a high level for 15 years.
- ‘I’m sure both of them are maybe the best players in football history,’ says the United midfielder.
Speaking to Omnisport about it, he said: “If you ask my son, Ronaldo [is better than Messi]. They are different, they are different. Ronaldo, of course, he had talent but most of his success, he made because of his hard work.
“Messi is talented. I’m not saying that he didn’t work, for sure he worked, but they are different. For me it is hard to say who is the best. I think that over the last 15 years, they’re both the best.
“Some people may say Messi, some Ronaldo but for me they’ve been at the same level for 15 years. What they are doing is very hard, to keep that level for 15 years. It’s not easy to always be the best.
“I don’t know who is better from those two players, but I’m sure both of them are maybe the best players in football history.”
Unlike others, Matic seems to hold the same level of respect for both the players and is in awe of their contribution to the beautiful game over the years.
Who do you think is better among Ronaldo and Messi?
