‘I prefer Messi to Cristiano Ronaldo’
Madrid: Vicente del Bosque has revealed that he admires Barcelona attacker Lionel Messi more than Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo because of the Argentine`s style of play.
The duo are widely considered the best players in the world at the moment, but the Spain coach has a clear preference for the South American forward.
"Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo? I prefer Messi, because he`s more of a street player," Del Bosque said.
When asked whether he wanted to predict who would win the FIFA Ballon d`Or, the former Real Madrid boss stated that he did not see the award as a matter of importance.
"I do not like the Ballon d`Or. It`s a marketing tool. Our boys are good players and nice people.”
"If they gave [the award for best coach] to me, I would accept it, though, because I don`t want to upset FIFA."
Del Bosque missed out on the prestigious accolade in 2010 as Jose Mourinho won the award instead.
