In a recent exclusive DAZN  documentary titled The Making Of , Ronaldo explained the differences he believes there is between himself and fellow superstar Lionel Messi .

“In the case of Messi, he is an excellent player,” Ronaldo said in the production.

“Not only for the Ballons d'Or he has won but for also being a player who was always at the top year after year, just like me.

“The difference with me is that I've played for different clubs and I also won the Champions League with different clubs.

“I was the top scorer in the Champions League six times in a row.”
