Ronaldo Nazario Makes Big Messi/CR7 Claim

Ronaldo Nazario Makes Big Lionel Messi/Cristiano Ronaldo Claim

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jun 14, 2018 09:24 AM @KurtLaduma

Brazil legend Ronaldo Nazario has given his opinion on the Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo debate several times in the past, but he has now made a big claim that may surprise many.

The Best South American XI At The World Cup

The Brazilian, who is widely considered to be one of the best strikers of all time, is often asked to weigh in on who he believes is the better player, Messi or Ronaldo.

With his allegiance to Real Madrid, the Selecao icon has frequently sided with his namesake, but has now admitted that the FC Barcelona superstar brings more joy to the beautiful game.

"With his incredible attitude, with his incredible winning mentality, Cristiano Ronaldo is a unique player," he told Bild.

"But I admit that Lionel Messi brings even more magic to football.

"With his dribbling, his complete form of playing football and his ability to generate surprising situations in the attacks."

Messi and Ronaldo will both be in action for their respective countries at the 2018 FIFA World Cup over the course of the next month. You can keep close tabs on all the games with our World Cup planner in this week's issue of Soccer Laduma.
