Ronaldo: Messi makes me a better player

Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that the rivalry with Barcelona forward Lionel Messi is making him a better player, while stressing that the Argentine is not the only player who inspires him to reach new heights.

The Portugal international recently won the 2013 Fifa Ballon d'Or, beating the likes of Messi and Franck Ribery to the prestigious individual award, and he has made it clear that the performances of other high-profile names keep him on his toes.

The story is too old to be commented.

Just imagine if Messi didn't exists for a moment. CR7's numbers are incredible. But yeah competition breeds a better player.
