Edson Arantes Do Nascimento, popularly known in the football cycles as Pele has said that Barcelona star Lionel Messi is far superior to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Pele made this revelation at a packed media conference in a Glasgow hotel before a star guest at 'An Evening with Pele' where he was asked series of questions from football fans all across Scotland.

Asked by a fan who he thinks is the best player in the world and why Pele said:

"I could mention some names, but what has happened in the last 10 to 15 years, I think Messi is the player who was the most consistent all those years, no doubt."

"We have had a lot of good players. Then Cristiano Ronaldo came late but it is different because Messi is the more organised, he scores goals. Cristiano Ronaldo is like the Ronaldo from Brazil, he is a good scorer no doubt, but to me as a player it is Messi."

Ronaldo is expected to win the FIFA Ballon d'Or after clinching the Champions League with Real Madrid and the 2016 Euros with Portugal.

Lionel Messi has won the FIFA Player of the Year on five occasions, whereas Cristiano Ronaldo has won it three times.

Pele is the only player to have won the FIFA World Cup on three occasions as a player.
