Xavi: If You Know Football, You Know Messi Is Better Than CR7

FC Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez believes people who understand football will know that Real Madrid talisman Cristiano Ronaldo is not in the same class as Lionel Messi.
The Spaniard has insisted there will never be another player like the Argentine, and added that those who really understand the beautiful game will know that not even Ronaldo is at Messi's level.
"For me, there is no heir to Messi. There will never be one. There will be very good footballers, but nobody at Messi's level," he told Sport.
"To be at the top for so many years, winning so many individual and team trophies, will be impossible to surmount.
"In the future, everything will be more equal amongst the best players.
"Though now they try to sell the story of the Cristiano and Messi battle, those of us who know football know there is no comparison.
"When Messi ends his career, there will be Neymar, Hazard, five or 10 players at a similar level, but none with the unquestionable superiority of Messi."
Ronaldo recently won the 2016 European Championship with Portugal, and many feel that this separates him from the 29-year-old Blaugrana star, who has never won an international tournament with Argentine, despite reaching four finals.
At club level, however, Messi has scored 456 goals in 533 matches for Barca, and has also lifted 28 trophies with the team.
