If there is one argument in football that divides opinion more than any other, it is surely the debate over which player is better: Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. And, three-time World Footballer of the Year Ronaldo—the Brazilian, not the Portuguese—is the latest to have his say, stating his belief that Messi has more impact on big games than his La Liga rival.
Ronaldo, who played for both Barcelona and Real Madrid during his stellar career, said: ”I would stick with Messi. It is difficult. It is like when you are looking to buy a house and they offer you many nice ones, but you need to pick one.
“Messi seems more complete to me, or at least more decisive. In the important moments, he appears and scores goals.”
