  • Ferguson: Ronaldo could score a hat-trick for Doncaster, I'm not sure Messi could

    Sir Alex Ferguson believes Cristiano Ronaldo is better than Lionel Messi because only the Real Madrid forward could ‘play for Doncaster Rovers and score a hat-trick’. Ronaldo won three Premier League titles, the Champions League, and was named Fifa World Player of the Year during his his six-year stay at Manchester United after being signed by Ferguson from Sporting in 2003. Messi and Ronaldo have dominated the Ballon d’Or award for the past seven years, with the Barcelona forward edging the race with four titles to Ronaldo’s three, but Ferguson feels the Portugal international would be more influential than his rival if they were both asked to play for a weaker team.
