Gullit: Robben and Ribery are not stars of Messi's calibre

The retired footballer has claimed that his compatriot and the French international are not of the same quality as the Ballon d'Or holder and Cristiano Ronaldo
Ruud Gullit has launched a scathing attack at Bayern Munich duo Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery by claiming that the wingers are far from being world-class stars.

The former Netherlands international believes that the two attackers have a long way to go until they reach the level of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
25/1 Arjen Robben is 25/1 to score a hat-trick against Hoffenheim on Saturday

"Bayern are a good team. They do not have many stars but the team is well put together," he told Bild.

Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are stars. They are of a different calibre than Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery

Gullit is of the opinion that Robben's persistent injuries has hampered his career to a great extent.

"He is the best player the Netherlands have. But whenever you need him, something happens. His body is springing nasty surprises. He is injured far too often."
