Roberto Carlos: 'Cristiano Ronaldo better than Lionel Messi'

Former Real Madrid defender Roberto Carlos claims that Cristiano Ronaldo is "more decisive" for his club team than Lionel Messi is for Barcelona.

Former Real Madrid defender Roberto Carlos has claimed that Cristiano Ronaldo has more of an impact on the Los Blancos side than Lionel Messi has for Barcelona.

Carlos, who also revealed that he thinks Neymar is currently the best player in the world, has said that Ronaldo is "more decisive" in his club team than Messi is for the Catalan outfit.

"Messi is phenomenal but in my opinion, Cristiano is a special player because he does everything for Madrid," Carlos told Globoesporte.

"It is not that Madrid do not have others – [Toni] Kroos, Marcelo - but I think Cristiano is more decisive in Real Madrid than Messi in Barcelona.

"Messi plays with Neymar, [Luis] Suarez, [Andres] Iniesta, [Sergio] Busquets, while Cristiano starts to fight, assist and score from the front. He is a special player."

Ronaldo became Real Madrid's all-time leading scorer earlier this month and has now netted 325 goals in 312 appearances for the Spanish giants.
