'Ronaldo Now On A New Level, Above Messi'

'Cristiano Ronaldo Now On A New Level, Above Lionel Messi'

By Keegan Kruger - Jun 21, 2018 08:00 PM @KeeganKruger

The debate over who the best player in the world is is a constant one, but according to a Manchester United legend, Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo is now firmly ahead of Argentina's Lionel Messi.

Portugal Star: You Can't Compare Messi To Ronaldo

The in-form Real Madrid star has netted four goals in two matches for his national team at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, while his FC Barcelona rival has failed to open his account thus far.

Former Red Devils captain Roy Keane feels that Ronaldo has lifted his game to another level in recent months, and has done enough to cement himself as the best player in history.

"I think there has been a great debate about him (Cristiano Ronaldo) and (Lionel) Messi, but over the last six months, I think he's on a new level – he's out there on his own," Keane said on ITV.

"It's not natural ability, as brilliant as he is, it's sheer hard work. He's got a lot of courage, he's brave and the guy is a genius.

"I think, his form over the last few months, I'd have him above of Messi."

Ronaldo made 44 appearances for Los Blancos last season, scoring 44 goals and assisting a further eight strikes.

Any team with Ronaldo looks more stronger than one with Messi. Even if we had to take Ronaldo to Baroka and Messi to Polokwane city, Baroka will look threatening.

Messi only performs when around good players but the King performs everywhere (Real Madrid, Man United and most recently Portugal) Give that guy a bell
