“Messi, I’ve never changed that. I think I’m with the majority on that. I think I have possibly more respect for Ronaldo and the reason I say that is because he has got unbelievable talent but his mentality, his focus, his work rate has made him what he is, or get him to where he is, has taken him to another level,” he said while speaking Pure Football podcast.
