It doesn't really matter whether one is in Jerusalem or Judea, the rivalry between Portugal worldwide Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentina forward Lionel Messi is not one that can end in a jiffy. He has also won the Ballon d'Or five times and remains the competition's all-time leading scorer.

However, Ronaldo feels he has accomplished more because he has been so successful at numerous clubs.

However, Ronaldo sits ahead of Messi on total Champions League winners medals, having secured an additional triumph in 2008 during his time with Premier League outfit Manchester United.

In comparison, Messi has remained at Barcelona since joining from Newell's Old Boys in 2001.

Portuguese football legend and Juventus superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed why he and Lionel Messi can be regarded as the greatest footballers ever.

"The difference with Messi is that I played for several clubs and won the Champions League with different clubs", the Portugal captain said.

"Messi is an excellent player who will be remembered not just for his Ballon d'Or wins, but also for having improved - like me - year after year".

Rosenthal shared a photo of the offending drawing on social media, where it went viral. A representative with Burger King says they fired five employees who were involved.

He further added: "There are great players that I respect who have three, four or, at most, five years at their peak".

Meanwhile, Ronaldo also hailed former boss Zinedine Zidane for the impact he had on his career.

"The confidence a player needs isn't just up to him, but the people around him, the other players and the coach".

"How he is, how he speaks and how he leads the team is so special, and how he treated me".

"He'd say to me: "Cris, relax, go out and play your game - you're the one who's going to make the difference".

"I have never seen players, as we say in Portugal: "breaking stones every year", scoring 40 or 50 goals, winning titles, always being up there".
