And Cole didn't hesitate, immediately siding with Messi.

"It has to be Messi," he said on Sky Sports.

Cole admitted the Barcelona great 'was just too good' for him while adding a cheeky line.

"People talk about Ronaldo more because I played against him more. But I think to mark Messi, on his day... he was just too good for me.

"But, again, he's never scored [against me]," he added.

Manchester United hero Ronaldo actually named Cole as the toughest defender he has ever faced.

"Over the years I had some great battles with Ashley Cole, he does not give you a second to breathe," the Portuguese superstar said.

"He was such a tenacious player when he was at his peak, quick, tough in the tackle. You knew it would never be an easy game."

Ronaldo and Messi could face off again one last time tonight as Juventus take on Barcelona in the Champions League.

"The one with Cristiano Ronaldo was and is a special duel, which will remain forever," he said, reflecting on their time together in La Liga. "It lasted many years and it is not easy to maintain certain levels for a long time.

"Our teams were also very demanding: Real Madrid and Barcelona, the two strongest clubs in the world. Competing as equals for so many years is something that will remain forever. The duel between me and Cristiano Ronaldo was very good on a personal level and I think people enjoyed it."
