“I think if you had to choose it would be Cristiano Ronaldo, having won the Champions League and scoring two goals in the final. Leo Messi is a fantastic player and had a great season. He’s played very well in the league, scoring goals. I’m happy for Neymar because the last five years have been a big competition between Messi and Ronaldo, and now Neymar has come into play and he’s done incredibly well. He’s scoring a lot of goals and has great technical skills. It’s great to watch him play.”
