Ex Manchester United star, Dimitar Berbatov has said he believes the Ballon d’Or battle and football debate between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo should end.
He thinks the award should be given to the two players every season from now on to end all disputes.
Both players have always attracted debates and arguments but Berba, despite being an ex-Man Utd team-mate of Ronaldo, has said he respects Messi.
His words, “Ronaldo versus Messi, how can you separate them? I think they should get their awards and give it to both of them. All the time. You can’t say this one is better than the other,”
“Ronaldo wants them all because he is so ambitious. He is desperate to break this record then that record. Messi is not showing it but inside and when he is at home then he probably thinks, ‘I will f***ing destroy everybody’. When you are good, you know you are good. Why shy away from that?”
“I have f***ing respect for Ronaldo’s longevity,” Berbatov added. “He is 34! He plays for Juventus as a star player after playing in England and Spain, now Italy. In every championship he has done unbelievably well.
“Look at his physique, how he prepares. He has all the tools around him to stay young forever. He can keep himself young in his soul.”
“Look at Ibrahimovic, MLS is not the same as England or Italy or whatever, Although, I am 38, let me tell you, I wake up every morning and have pain here, here, here. I watch Ibra and think what the f*** man? Maybe he has something I don’t have which is why he is still playing.”
