The Ronaldo vs Messi debate is one of football's greatest discussions, gripping enthusiasts worldwide for years. While the Portugal international is gearing up for the next chapter of his illustrious career on Saudi Arabian soil, the Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) star hopes to continue his dream run after guiding Argentina to their third World Cup victory in Qatar last month.

In an interview with NTV Spor, Aboubakar said, "I always thought that Messi was better than Ronaldo, but after I had practice with him, I knew I was right."

The Cameroon international's comments will surprise many, especially Al-Nassr fans, who are waiting for Ronaldo to debut for the club in the Saudi Pro League.
