Controversial Argentinian striker Carlos Tevez has said he believes Cristiano Ronaldo saying he can never be as good as his compatriot Lionel Messi.

Tevez, who played alongside Ronaldo during his tenure at Manchester United, said:

“Cristiano is one of the best players in the world and he will play in this game the way he always does.

 “He does not seem to feel pressure. We will have to keep a special eye on him.
“I think that you have got to try and make sure he doesn’t get in behind you.
“Once he gets a chance to run at you, he is very dangerous and he strikes the ball well too, so you have to try and stop him further up the field.
“I think it is only right if Cristiano does believe he is the best in the world. Any guy who gets 37 to 40 goals a season has a right to believe that, but if you push me, I am always going to go on the side of Messi.” 
Manchester City, where Tevez plies his trade, face Ronaldo’s Real Madrid team tonight in a must-win encounter for the English side. Speaking of what he felt going into the match, Tevez quoted:
“The players are all convinced it is still possible. As long as it is mathematically possible, why not?
“As long as we go out determined to win the last two games, it then depends on how the other results turn out.
“Real Madrid are one of the best teams in the world but it is a case of going out to win. I wouldn’t want to put pressure on myself to think I am going to make the difference.“It has to be a group effort, the team working together as a whole.”
