No, not that Nadal, not the tennis player. Well, former Barcelona defender Miguel Angel Nadal believes that Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo is not a match for Barcelona talisman, Lionel Messi.
The Argentine played a key role for Barcelona in the 2014-15 season, as a string of sublime performances helped Barca to the treble.
Though Ronaldo beat Messi to the La Liga top scorer award, Nadal believes that Messi stands alone as the game’s biggest.
“Barcelona have a great team with one special player, Messi. He is able to unlock a game from out of nowhere,” Nadal told Goal.
“Cristiano Ronaldo has been putting in spectacular performances, but there really is no comparison with Messi.
“He is on another level than all the other players. He is the undisputed best. No player has the ability to do what he does.”
