The Portuguese star is one of the best players in the history of football. He has also played during the same period as Leo Messi, who many consider the best of all time and with whom Cristiano Ronaldo has a fierce rivalry.
Comparisons of the two players are constant. Every weekend, arguments are thrown in favour and against each of them to determine once and for all, who will ultimately be remembered as the best of the best.
The current Juventus player is under so much pressure to prove that he can surpass Lionel Messi, that even his own teammates tease him about it - goading the Portuguese player into letting his ego show.
This has been confirmed by some of his former teammates, who have revealed that the former Madrid player, before running on the field, carefully looks at himself in front of a mirror and tells himself that he has an incredible body. When another player took this opportunity to remind him that Messi was better than him, Ronaldo was very quick to respond...
Check out the video above to see exactly what he had to say!
