There is no doubt that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are two of the best players the world has ever seen.
Both are idolized like gods, by their millions of loyal fans that believe one is better than the other.
A common consensus is that Lionel Messi is the more technically gifted player between the two, whereas Ronaldo had to train his backside off to get to where he is now.
Former team-mate of both players- Carlos Tevez says that Messi trains just as hard as Ronaldo.
Tevez has played with Messi while representing Argentina and with Ronaldo at Manchester United.
He squashed claims asked by publication Marca if Ronaldo had to work harder because Messi is more talented.
“Messi works on his talent too, eh.
“Just look at how when Leo started he never scored goals from free kicks, he practiced them loads and now he scores loads like that.
“I don’t think that with Cristiano Ronaldo it’s a matter of work more than talent. Messi in the last two years has begun to really take care about what he’s eating, he’s ditched the cola etc.”
