Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says Lionel Messi is purely a Barcelona product but believes Cristiano Ronaldo would be a success anywhere in the world.
“Ronaldo is tough,” the Scot told BBC Sport. “People say ‘who is the player in the world’ and plenty of people quite rightly say Messi. You can’t dispute that opinion.
“But the thing about Ronaldo… Ronaldo could play for Millwall, QPR, Doncaster Rovers or anyone and he’d score a hat-trick. I’m not sure Messi could do it.
“Ronaldo’s got two feet, he’s quick, he’s good in the air and he’s brave, though Messi’s brave too of course. I just think Messi is a Barcelona player.”
