Legendary Spain and Real Madrid manager, Vicente del Bosque has given his view on who he thinks is the best player in the world, with the Spaniard revealing why he believes that Barcelona icon, Lionel Messi is the best.

Messi is widely considered by many to be the greatest player in the history of the sport, though there are also fans who believe that Portugal superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo deserves the honour. The duo have dominated the sport for well over a decade, as seen by the combined 11 Ballon d'Or awards they have won between them.

Del Bosque though has given his reasons as to why Messi is better than Ronaldo and the world's best player.

“Lionel Messi is the world’s best and that is not slight on Cristiano Ronaldo. He is a kid from the street, from the neighbourhood. One of those who has been playing and mocking you on the field. That is why he is the best player of the world," he said as quoted by Marca.

The 70-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best managers in the history of the sport, enjoying success both at club and international level. Del Bosque helped the Los Blancos win two LaLiga titles and two Champions League honours across two spells with them, while also leading his country to the 2010 World Cup and 2012 European Championship title.
