Why Ronaldo is the best!? Here is his answer:

Cristiano Ronaldo has named Barcelona superstars Lionel Messi and Neymar as two of the players who push him to continue his high levels.

Ronaldo gave an interview to ESPN during Real Madrid’s pre-season tour and he was asked about the player who pushes him hardest, with the obvious answer being Messi.

However Ronaldo said that there are so many top players at the moment who keep him on his toes.

The forward of course named Messi as well as Neymar, Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski and Gonzalo Higuain of Juventus.

“To mention one is hard, but the level that I am is like in other sports: Formula One, NBA …The best players always follow the best players,” Ronaldo said.

“They want to be in the top of the game because the other ones are there. You cannot rest or sleep because the other ones will pass you.

“Of course we fight with everyone, with Neymar, with Messi, [Robert] Lewandowski, [Gonzalo] Higuain, with the best players in the world. This is not “fighting” but it’s healthy. We fight to be the best.
