Messi better than Ronaldo – Huntelaar

Wroclaw, Poland – Dutch star striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has offered his opinion on two of the greatest offensive forces in football today, saying Argentina star Lionel Messi is much better than Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is good, but Messi is 10 times better,” Huntelaar told the Dutch football magazine Elf Voetbal.

Messi can “get around his opponent in just a square metre. Ronaldo needs more space. Messi is just great”.

Huntelaar's Netherlands will take on Ronaldo's Portugal on June 17 in their teams' final group B match. – Sapa-dpa
