Is there a funnier joke than Cristiano Ronaldo’s on Lionel Messi ahead of El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona this weekend?
The world’s most expensive player was asked the most obvious and tricky question at an interview on Thursday. Barcelona’s Lionel Messi is in the best form of his life, having scored 4 goals in the UEFA Champions against Arsenal on Tuesday.
Now ahead of El Clasico, the media wanted to know what the 2008 Ballon d’Or and World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo thought about the Argentine play maker.
Question: “Who is the best player in the world, you (Cristiano Ronaldo) or Messi?”
Answer: “I’m the biggest. At least I’m taller and wider too, that’s for sure.”
Actually, Cristiano Ronaldo’s height is of 185 centimeters and he weights 83 kilograms. Lionel Messi, meanwhile, weights only 67 kilograms and his height is of 169 centimeters!
What effect will those statistics have on El Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona on Saturday? Many Cristiano Ronaldo fans fear that Messi will destroy Los Blancos tomorrow like he destroyed Arsenal in midweek. But until then, let’s laugh about the joke!
