London: Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed to be better than Argentinean striker Lionel Messi.

“You cannot compare a Ferrari with a Porsche because they have different engines. He does his very best for Barcelona and I do my best for Real Madrid,” Sports24 quoted Ronaldo, as saying.

The Portuguese footballer, 27, insisted that he was superior to Messi, who has won the Ballon d`Or for the world`s Best Player in the last three years.

The former Manchester United player also reflected on Madrid`s Champions League semi-final defeat to Bayern Munich, where he was among the players who missed from the spot in a penalty shoot-out after the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"It is always hard to lose, and especially when you do so on penalties. I am not too worried because I still scored that day (twice, in regulation time) but it is true that it was one of the worst days of my career,” said Ronaldo.
