Sao Paulo (Brazil) : Two-time Formula One World Champion Fernando Alonso said Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is a better footballer than Argentine international Lionel Messi.
“I was born to be a Real Madrid fan,” the 36-year-old was quoted as saying by Spanish website Marca.
“For me, Cristiano is better than Messi. Of course, Messi is an incredible talent but as a Real Madrid fan, I’m only interested in Los Blancos players,” Alonso added.
The Spaniard also said he likes to watch football in his free time and is a big fan of Real Madrid defenders Marcelo and Casemiro.
“I still love football a lot and try to play it sometimes too but above all, I most enjoy watching on TV,” the McLaren-Honda driver said.
