Gary Lineker, an English football legend, says that there is no need to compare Lionel Messi with Cristiano Ronaldo. According to him, Messi is a much better player than Ronaldo.
As we know, Ronaldo and Messi are indeed called the best players in the world today. Both are true players who are able to collect many trophies with their club.
Interestingly, this debate was also carried out by fans of both camps, where Ronaldo fans said that Ronaldo was far better than Messi, and vice versa.
Until now, Ronaldo has managed to collect five Ballon d’Or trophies, five Champions League trophies, three Premier League trophies, and two La Liga trophies. While Messi has collected five Ballon d’Or trophies, four Champions League trophies, and nine La Liga trophies.
Unfortunately Lineker thinks that the trophy is not the determinant of who is the best player. He believes that there is only one of the best players in the world, Messi.
“Messi is a phenomenal player. He was 31 years old but his abilities were still very terrible. All can see the slick game, “Lineker opens to talkSPORT.
“Many compare what is more powerful, but for me, Messi is the best player in the world.”
“Those who say Ronaldo is better are blind, that simple. They must see how Messi dribbling, passes, kicks and pokes opponents. Messi is the best for now. “
