When Cristiano Ronaldo was asked by media whether there is anything about Messi’s game that envies him, the Portuguese replied;
“His left foot is pretty good — better than mine,” he said. “I’d like to have his left foot.”
At the other end of the stage, Messi’s Barca teammate Neymar interrupted. “I’d take both of his feet,” the Brazilian said amid smiles from all three superstars.
“Obviously it is not surprising to me that Leo might have better chance,” Cristiano Ronaldo continued. “But I am here for a reason, because of the votes from national coaches and captains.
“It is not a surprise to me if Leo or Neymar wins, as on a collective level they won many trophies. But all three of us are here on our own merits. I am happy with my season — we did not win many trophies, but it was another great year. So I am very happy to be here for an eighth time.”
