Reader’s Voice: Ronaldo 'Left LaLiga To Escape Messi's Shadow'

E Reng Moo?

Juventus' Supercoppa Italiana victory on Wednesday was Cristiano Ronaldo's 29th trophy as a player. But what would this be without a comparison to Lionel Messi's career? The Argentine won 34 trophies in his career so far, and this fuelled the fire that is the Ronaldo/Messi debate!

Tabo Ziqelekasi Ngqola is adamant Messi is still the best player in the world:

"34 for Messi in one team and 29 for Ronaldo in three teams. You do the math and tell me who is the best. Messi is the king of football."

However, Munwai Victor Mukundi thinks this is exactly the reason why Ronaldo is better than Messi. For this Soccer Laduma reader, the fact that Messi has been at FC Barcelona for all his senior career means he is stuck in a comfort zone:

"Messi must just get out of that comfort zone and show us that he can do it anywhere."

Thamie Tee M Funeka says Messi is so good that Ronaldo had to leave LaLiga to escape his shadow! The Soccer Laduma reader says Messi will continue to haunt the Juventus attacker even in Serie A:

"He (Ronaldo) left LaLiga to escape Messi's shadow. He will still feel his presence even in that one-team league called Serie A."
