REAL MADRID ace Marco Asensio has been asked who he thinks is better out of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The question is one that divides football fans all around the world as both stars continue to shine for their respective teams.
Ronaldo and Messi have broken almost all previous records between them and share five Ballon d’Ors apiece.
This season it looks highly likely that Barcelona will wrap up the La Liga title and the Copa del Rey.
Real Madrid have now pinned all of their hope of success in the Champions League – but Asensio still says he would rather play alongside Ronaldo than his Argentine riva
“Every year Cristiano is at an impressive level,” Asensio told Spanish newspaper AS.
“Messi and Cristiano are at a great level.
“But I can only say Cristiano, who is on my side.”
Asensio has this week linked up with the Spain squad who are putting the final preparations to their team ahead of the World Cup in the summer.
“We have to have confidence in us and then see what happens.
“Brazil is very strong, Germany as a team is great and in all competitions it’s always there.
“Then England, France… the matches can be decided by small details.”
