The retired Dutch footballer has ranked Barca’s Lionel Messi over Madrid’s Cristiano, stating that the Argentine has a greater love for the ball.
Cruyff was of the opinion that the Argentine international’s technical ability is superior to that of the Portuguese skipper. The Dutchman expressed that he would call Messi the best player in the world, as his passion for football is simply inspirational.
This is not the first time that the two footballers have been compared to one another; in fact, the two men have always remained in competition.
As much as they try to deny it, there is a massive sense of rivalry between Messi and Ronaldo as both of them try their best to be the finest in the world.
The Barca number 10 and the Madrid number 7 have been compared to one another even before Ronaldo joined Los Blancos.
Back when the Portuguese international played for Manchester United, football viewers took only Messi to be his competitor at the top of the footballing world.
Every time the two men have faced each other on the pitch, it has sparked interest from all over the globe.
At the moment, the duo is in contention for the Pichichi award in the Spanish La Liga. 
Messi is currently leading the race by two goals, after scoring a hat-trick against Malaga during the midweek.
The current Chivas advisor has emphasized that the Argentine overtakes his competitor due to his love for the ball and the beautiful game, also adding that Messi’s off the pitch behaviour is also commendable.
While talking to reporters, the 65-year-old was quoted as saying:
"Messi or Messi, because he's in love with the ball. He's pure technique and he's a good kid."
As the Spanish Primera draws to a conclusion, it will be interesting to see which one of the two superstars lands this year’s Pichichi award.
