Brazil legend Kaka has weighed in on the age-old Cristiano Ronaldo vs. Lionel Messi question and his answer may surprise you.
The ex-AC Milan and Real Madrid star made his pick during an Instagram Live Q&A for FIFA's channel on Friday.
And he chose "genius" Messi over his former teammate Ronaldo.
"I played with Cristiano and he's really amazing, but I'll go with Messi," Kaka said when asked who he would select out of Messi and Ronaldo, Goal reports.
"He's a genius, a pure talent. The way he plays is incredible."
Ronaldo and Kaka were teammates at Real Madrid for four seasons, but the 37-year-old has opted for the Barcelona skipper.
But Kaka was full of praise for Ronaldo, saying: "Cristiano is a machine. It's not just the way he's strong, powerful and fast; he's strong mentally.
"He always wants to win and play. To be the best. For me, that's the most incredible thing he has.
"In the history of sport, they [Messi and Cristiano] are definitely in the top five. We are very lucky to have been able to see both of them."
