Cristiano Ronaldo: 'I'm better than Messi'

"You cannot compare a Ferrari with a Porsche because they have different engines," said Ronaldo in a CNN interview. "He does his very best for Barcelona and I do my best for Real Madrid."

Ronaldo scored 46 goals to lead Real Madrid to La Liga title. Messi broke the Spanish league scoring record with 50 goals for second-place Barca.
