Iniesta reacts to Ronaldo’s claims he is the “greatest of all time”

By Boluwatife Ezekiel Olaleye

Barcelona star Andres Iniesta is often a class above the rest and his comments following Cristiano Ronaldo’s fifth Ballon d’Or triumph further proved why the midfielder is held in such high regard across world football.

Ronaldo’s fifth FIFA award drew him level with rival Lionel Messi but it was the Real Madrid star’s words after being declared the 2017 winner which stole the headlines.

The 32-year-old proclaimed to France Football, via Goal: “I’ve never seen anyone better than me. I have always thought that. No footballer can do the things I can.

“There’s no player more complete than me. There are guys who prefer Neymar or Messi. But I tell you: there’s no one more complete than me.”

Ronaldo’s bold and not particularly modest statements has resulted in a number of debates and discussions surrounding who the best player in world football is, but none would have been as respectful as Iniesta.

Asked if he agreed with the Real Madrid stars evaluation of himself, Iniesta said, via Sport: “I don’t know if they were exactly his [Ronaldo’s] words.

“Each person is free to their own opinions and feelings. A player at his level, with five Ballon d’Ors… obviously he is among the best.

“From there, we all have are own preferences. Mine is clear. I’d go with my teammate, with Leo, for all that he’s represented and still represents. But everyone has their own tastes.
