Cristiano Ronaldo told he will always be second to Lionel Messi

Cristiano Ronaldo has established himself as one of the best footballers of this generation, breaking numerous records and winning the Ballon d’Or five times.

However, former Real Madrid forward Antonio Cassano has claimed Ronaldo will always be second to Lionel Messi despite all his achievements.

Cassano said on Instagram:

“Cristiano, listen to me: you’re strong, you won a lot, phenomenal… but you’re like Toto Cotugno, the eternal second.”

Toto Cotugno participated in 15 editions of the Sanremo Music Festival, the most popular Italian song contest, and even won the competition once. However, he has always been known as ‘l’eterno secondo’ after finishing second on six occasions.

Cassano’s comments on Ronaldo comes after he claimed last year that Messi is better than Ronaldo.

He said:

“He [Cristiano Ronaldo] told me that I had to respect him, I had to respect the goals he had scored, what he had won and what he represents. I fear nobody and I replied to him writing that I had just said the truth: there is only one Ronaldo and Messi is better than him.”

Cassano has also previously claimed Ronaldo is nothing more than a goalscorer.
