Cristiano Ronaldo: Ballon d'Or rival Lionel Messi has a better left foot

The Real madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo has just admitted that Lionel Messi has a better foot than him and he also accepted that the Barcelona star is a favourite to win the Ballon d'Or.
The comments came as Messi and fellow nominee Neymar spoke to reporters ahead of Monday's gala awards ceremony in Zurich.

Messi is tipped to pick up the fifth Ballon d'Or of his career, reclaiming his place as the world's best player after Ronaldo won the prize in 2013 and 2014.
Asked whether there was anything about Messi's game that he envied, Real Madrid galactico Ronaldo said he was a fan of the Argentine's left foot.

"His left foot is pretty good -- better than mine," he said. "I'd like to have his left foot."
At the other end of the stage, Messi's Barca teammate Neymar interrupted. "I'd take both of his feet," the Brazilian said amid smiles from all three superstars.
Messi, asked the same question, replied: "Envy is a very negative trait. Cristiano has many great qualities which every player would like to have. We each have our individual styles."

Ronaldo had earlier acknowledged that it was unlikely he would take the Ballon d'Or this year as his club had not won any major trophies while Barcelona had taken five including the Champions League and La Liga titles.
"Obviously it is not surprising to me that Leo might have better chance," he said. "But I am here for a reason, because of the votes from national coaches and captains.
