During an interview with Argentine radio Club Octobre FM, Messi was asked to name the five players he regards as the best in the world at the moment.
And he said : “In a list without my name, I’ll put Luis (Suarez), Sergio (Agüero), Neymar, Eden Hazard et Kylian Mbappé“.
Asked why he didn’t include Ronaldo in the list, Messi answered : “Cristiano Ronaldo? Oh him, I’m taking him off the list altogether. It is unclassifiable, I put him by my side. “
