Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are generational talents and we may never see another pair of footballers compete head to head against one another as we are witnessing these stars.
Lionel Messi, no a free agent surprisingly, won the Copa America 2021 title to finally win an international trophy with Argentina. On the other hand, Ronaldo has also won the Euro 2016 with Argentina and many other accolades at the club level.
So a video has gone viral on Youtube where 97 famous and meaningful personalities from the world of football choose between Ronaldo and Messi.
Here’s the video:
Angel di Maria said, “I had the opportunity to play with both. But I think Messi is different. For me, he’s definitely the best in the world by far, honestly.”
Zlatan Ibrahimovic: “I think Messi is one of a kind. I don’t think we’ll see another player do the things he does.”
Sir Alex Ferguson: “The thing about Ronaldo – Ronaldo could play for Millwall, Queens Park Rangers, Doncaster Rovers anyone and score a hat-trick in a game. I’m not sure Messi could do that.”
Kylian Mbappe: “Messi. He is still the best in every aspect and the best player in the world.”
In the above video, 97 people picked their favourite among which 61 chose Messi while 36 went with Ronaldo. Messi clearly won the battle here, but in real life, it’s much more complicated as Messi has won more trophies and recognition than Ronaldo but the Portuguese star has proven himself in three of the five best European leagues.
