Leo Messi Praises 'Phenomenal' Cristiano Ronaldo

Lionel Messi has hailed the ‘phenomenal’ Cristiano Ronaldo as a "player with a lot of quality" stating he enjoys the comparisons between the two.
Arguably two of the greatest football players of all time, the Barcelona man and his La Liga rival have shared the past nine Ballon d'Ors between them -- and Champions League winner Ronaldo almost certainly will make that a perfect 10 come December.

But when asked about his rival during Argentina's latest stopover in China, Messi said they are both "armed" by the brilliance of the other and that the rest of the talk around them is just noise.
"No, I have always said it -- and [Ronaldo] from his part -- that he is armed with the presence of us both," Messi is quoted by ESPN as telling Tencent..

"We try to achieve the best every year for our team, and what is said outside of that I don't think is very important. He is a phenomenal player with a lot of quality. All the world knows, and that is why he is one of the best of the world."
Barcelona relinquished the La Liga title to Ronaldo's Real Madrid this season, but Messi, who turns 30 later this month, reiterated his desire to stay with the Catalan giants and push for more silverware for many years to come.
"Whenever a new season starts, it [has] to be better than the last," Messi said.

"We play to achieve more, we play to get more titles, to be in the finals of [the] Champions [League], to win La Liga.

"It didn't happen this year. We tried, but it didn't happen. We ended it with La Copa. We hope that the year to come is better in the aspect of titles."
