However, Ronaldo has always considered him the best player of the past 20 years, and this time in interaction with DAZN, the 34-year-old superstar has made a statement on his rivalry with Messi and stated what separates him from the Argentine International.

Cristiano Ronaldo says Lionel Messi will go down in history for the consistency of his performances, but the Portuguese also feels that lifting the Champions League with more than one club sets him apart from the Barcelona star.

Ronaldo won the famous trophy with both Manchester United and Real Madrid, and there is every chance that he will add a third club to that list in the 2019/20 season with Juventus.

"I say it jokingly but it's true, there's a lot of work behind the trophies".

"The difference with Messi is that I played for several clubs and won the Champions League with different clubs", said CR7.

"Messi is an excellent player, he will not only be remembered for the Ballon d'Or but also for being always at the top, year after year, like me".

"I was the top scorer in the Champions League six times in a row".

Ronaldo picked up his second Champions League honour in the 2013-14 campaign before winning three consecutive titles in a row. "You're not just getting up to earn money; I'm not short of money, fortunately".

There aren't many players who won five Champions League trophies, so this is why I feel that I can identity myself with this tournament (the Champions League). I do not need money any more, thank God.

Who will win the Champions League next season?

"The confidence that a player needs doesn't only come from the player himself, but also the people around him, the other players, the coach", he added. "You should feel like a crucial part of the group and Zidane made me feel special", Ronaldo said.

"He helped me. I already had great respect for him, but after being my coach I became an even greater fan of Zidane".
