"[I've enjoyed watching] Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Oliver Kahn, Luka Modric, Iniesta, Xavi, Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo," he told FIFA.

"For me, Cristiano is above everyone else. His commitment and work ethic is unmatched. He wants it that bad -- you can see it every game."

When he was asked who had the better career out of Messi, 32, and Ronaldo, India's master run chaser reaffirmed his stance on the ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid star.

"He's the most complete player I have seen and his work ethic, as I mentioned, is unmatched.

"He inspires people. I don't think many people do that. He's also a leader and I love that. Absolutely love it. He has amazing belief, too."

"He's a beast and he will definitely be at the top of the pile for me. Absolutely top-class player."
