Former Barcelona defender Dmytro Chygrynskiy reckons Cristiano Ronaldo is not as good as Lionel Messi because the Real Madrid superstar is too “selfish”.
Ronaldo is expected to be crowned Ballon d’Or winner at the end of this season due to his 42 goals in 46 matches as well as his performances for Portugal.
Messi has already bagged five Ballon d’Or awards and Ronaldo would draw level should he win at the end of the year.
Despite that, Chygrynskiy, who played with Messi for one season, rates the Argentine as the better player for his teamwork and unselfish play.
“Cristiano is a good scorer, but he is not the best in the world because he is selfish,” Chygrynskiy said.
“Messi is different, he always thinks of the team.”
Chygrynskiy may have a point this campaign with Messi leading the goalscoring charts with 12 goals compared to Ronaldo’s one in La Liga this season.
