Messi vs Ronaldo: Vitinha makes honest confession on who’s better
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have been the subject of an ongoing discussion about who is the better player. Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Vitinha has given his very honest opinion on the matter.

Both superstars have shared 12 Ballon d’Ors among themselves—seven for Messi and five for the legendary Portuguese football icon.
Ronaldo has also claimed five UEFA Champions League trophies to Messi’s four.

“There are far more things that unite them than things that separate them. They each have their own way of playing and their own characteristics, but the things that unite them are immense. The will to always want more, without taking into account what they have already earned, is part of it, "he told O Jogo.
If I won half of what they won, that would be amazing! The desire to keep scoring goals, making assists, playing great games, helping the team.
“That’s what defines them as the best of all time, and I’m privileged to have had the time to play with them.”
