In an interview with Pedro Pinto of CNNInternationals World Sport, Ronaldo was asked "are you better than him [Messi] this season?" Usually, athletes will give a passive, politically correct response, but CR7 answered with a direct response. “Some people say I’m better, other people say it’s him, but at the end of the day, they’re going to decide who is the best player at the moment, which I think is me.” Do you agree with Cristiano's point-of-view?
