El-Classico: Ronaldo Obsessed with Messi –Stoichkov

Barcelona legend Hristo Stoichkov added a little extra intrigue to the upcoming Clasico between the Blaugrana and Real Madrid, claiming Cristiano Ronaldo is “obsessed” with Lionel Messi and that Los Blancos should consider cashing in on their biggest star.

The former Bulgaria international spoke about Sunday’s match, which will have a massive impact on this year’s La Liga race, and predictably, he backed his former club to come away with the win.

He then went on to explain the difference between Messi and Ronaldo.

“Nobody doubts the quality of either of them, but Messi is in a great vein of form and Cristiano seems to be on a bit of a downer.

“If I look at how he’s playing and how his team is playing, then I’d clearly choose Messi. The Argentine is operating on the level that Pele and Cruyff were on. That’s the big difference with Ronaldo just now.

“Cristiano is upset that he’s compared to Messi, while Messi is compared to the other all-time greats,” he said.
