Boca Juniors forward Carlos Tevez has made a comparison between FC Barcelona’s Argentina forward Lionel Messi and Real Madrid’s Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo.
Tevez is one of the few players that have had the privilege of working with both stars, partnering with Messi for Argentina and won a Champions League alongside Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United.
“Cristiano is totally different to Messi,” ESPN Argentina quoted the Argentine international footballer as saying; “When Leo was starting out, he didn’t touch a gym. [But] Cristiano was there in the morning, afternoon and evening, all the time.
“Cristiano had to work and prepare himself to be the best, while for Leo it comes natural.
“Those are the greatest differences that I see between the two best players on the planet.
“Messi plays another sport.
“For Messi to score three goals [in any given game] is normal.”
