Barcelona attacker and Uruguayan international, Luis Suarez believes that teammate, Messi was born great while Ronaldo has had to work hard to get to where he is.
Both players are considered the bar when it comes to naming the greats in modern football, having won seven ballon d’ors between them.
Suarez believes Messi’s consistency has set him apart from anyone else.
“Messi is a natural. It’s in his character,” the Uruguay international told Le Buteur.
“Messi is the best player in the world. He was born with his qualities.
“Ronaldo has progressed over the course of the years and has worked very hard to reach his current level.
“He was not at the same level when he first made his debut, though. That’s why I think Leo is the better of the two.”
