World Cup-Winning Boss: I Pick Messi Over Ronaldo!

Germany manager Joachim Low has explained why he would prefer FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi to Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo in his team.

CR7 Drops Transfer Bombshell

The duo, who have already cemented their place among the game's greats, have dominated the Ballon d'Or over the past 10 years, and have been at the centre of a raging debate as to who the better player between them is for years.

Speaking in an interview recently, Die Mannschaft boss Low revealed why who would prefer to have Messi over Ronaldo in his team. 

"I would stick with Messi," he told Bild

"Cristiano Ronaldo is sensational, a very good professional, an incredible goalscoring machine for many years, but Messi is the most complete player I have seen.

"He is a great team player. He's provided 30 to 40 assists for the last 10 years, as well as scoring around 50 goals.

"He's capable of leaving eight or nine players in his path, and his goals always stay in your memory."

Messi: Why I Turned Down Spain

While Ronaldo has won the European Championship with Portugal, Messi is yet to win a big competition with Argentina, having finished as runners-up in three major tournaments with the Albiceleste – at the 2014 World Cup and in the latest two editions of the Copa America.
