Who Is Better, Ronaldo Or Messi?

It is a long standing debate that has been going on for years. Who is the best player in the world? Is it Real Madrid’s Cristano Ronaldo, or is it Barcelona’s Lionel Messi?

Now there are many arguments to be made in this debate and both players are phenomenal.

Ronaldo was named FIFA World Player Of The Year and Balon D’Or winner in 2008, while Messi won those awards a year later in 2009. In 2010, both awards were combined into the FIFA Balon D’Or Award and Messi claimed it for the second year running.

In 2011 and 2012, Messi claimed the award again to become the first player to ever win it four times and then, in a twist of fortunes, Ronaldo reclaimed the award in 2013.

Both players have broken numerous records and have firmly established themselves as the greatest players of their generation. Messi’s low centre of gravity, well-placed passes and tremendous left-footed finishing have seen him considered as the greatest Argentinian to play the game since Diego Maradona.

Ronaldo, on the other hand, is praised for his physical superiority on the pitch, his completeness, his powerful shot and his ability to play with both feet.

For now, Ronaldo is a reigning European Champion at club level and will be considered to be in better form, but Messi has won more titles over the years and many will still consider him as the best player in the world.

Now, we would like to hear from you, the fans, about who is the best. Cast your vote and let us know your opinion in the comments section.
