Modric, 32, however said he’s not interested in choosing any of them above the other, but admitted he would vote for his Portuguese teammate if it becomes necessary.
Responding to the long-lasting and popular Messi vs Ronaldo debate, the Croatian playmaker told SVT Sport, “Both Ronaldo and Messi are great players…It depends on people’s taste…Sometimes, they tend to like one player for other reasons other than performance on the pitch.
“I don’t like comparing Messi and Cristiano because, but for us, as Real Madrid players, we always see CR7 as the best.”
Modric also revealed he treasures sharing the same dressing room with C. Ronaldo, who has won the Ballon d’Or a record five times as the Barca and Argentina international footballer, Messi.
Both Modric and the famous No. 7 have been together for the past 6 years, winning three Champions League titles and more together.
Who's the best player in the world? Messi or Ronaldo?
