La Liga president Javier Tebas has said that Lionel Messi is much better than Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo, and whoever says that Messi is not the best in the world, he does not understand football.
Tebas used Barça’s 5-0 victory over Levante as an example to describe Messi, who scored three goals and assisted the other two on Sunday in Valencia.
“Anyone who has seen the match against Levante and is a football fan and does not think of his club’s colors for a moment, should open his eyes and say that Messi is the best player in the world and the difference is great” , Tebas said.
The president added, “It does not matter which team you support, if someone criticizes Messi and says he is not the best in the world at the moment, then you do not understand football.”
Asked about the difference between Messi and Ronaldo, Tebas, who is a Madrid fan, said clearly: “In this era, he is far ahead of Ronaldo. So it has always been in the other seasons. He is leading Barcelona. He continues to take responsibility. He has achieved an extraordinary level, “he added.
