    I'm a messi fan and I respect both players... but in terms of the whole package? For me Ronaldo is the whole package.

  • Jay_Are

    give me Cr7, messi is great but man played in la liga is whole life.

    You can’t compare players from different eras. Look at players like Jimmy Greaves, George Best, Johan Cruyff - they played on mud piles, in the snow, played when defenders were allowed to kick you in the air from behind, with heavy water logged leather balls that didn’t dip and swerve. The best you can say is that a player is the best player of a certain era, and therefore one of the greatest players ever.

    Where is messi though? Messi makes a simple pass and everyone says how amazing he is! Ronaldo scores 4 goals in 3 games and they slate his performance? Im sorry but Ronaldo is the goat in all 4 clubs he played for. Messi only played well in Barcelona because 10 players played around him. Big difference!

    Is this Neville the man who failed in Spain when he was attempting the coaching world ? If Messi can recieve a ball in his own half and go score goals ,doing that multiple times why wouldn’t you bring him in when you need him🤷🏾‍♂️messi’s individual brilliance put him above anyone else and make him suitable for any team including my poor local teams Ronaldo still need a supplier !

    Messi is the best dribbler, best attacking playmaker and best goal scorer of his generation. Ronaldo is the second best goal scorer of his generation. ‘Nuff said.

  • Antidote54

    The difference between the two 🐐 is one's chosen to go to the most competitive league in the world and is making a statement, and the other to a farmers league and is firing blanks.

    It is all about who you think is the best, it is all about what standard you put for your creteria, and I think Cristiano showed to the world with determination and hard work and strong mentality many can be great player, let's wait in see the how Messi gonna do in PSG, but Ronaldo already scored 6 goals in his last 4 games, 4 goals in his last 3 games with Manchester united

    Messi can run a game??? Like the ones againt Bayen when they lost by 8, like the ones against Liverpool when the threw away a 3 gaol lead??? Who allowed Caragher back on sky ? After that vile disgusting mucus show against a united Fan?

    Stats prove messi is better and its not even close.

  • Matt Williams

    Messi has much better goals/games ratio than cristiano. When u take out penalties the difference is even bigger. Not only that but messi is a much better creator. Messi has better freekicks, and longshots also.

  • Matt Williams
    Matt Williams

    Messi is better at everything including Cristianos best trait (goalscoring) messi does better than him.

  • Sw_zee

    Ronaldos proved himself in 4 major competition prem,la liga, seria a and champions league. He came to the prem 17/18 years old cant even speak English properly and he won everything. Went spain and Italy and won it all. Messi was always in the comfort zone around the best players in the world at the time incredible team. Now gone to a league not it top 5 and no impact at all in his last 3 games. Ronaldo back in the most competitive league in the world at 36 and scoring. Would of loved to see Messi in the prem.

    Messi has scored more in less appearances. Messi is better on the ball.

  • 👑 KING DAVID 👑
    👑 KING DAVID 👑

    Messi is a far greater all round player. Ronaldo isn't even in the top 5 player's of all time. Ronaldo is a great player but not a legend. Most of Ronaldos goals are set pieces. Most of Messi goals are goals scored after ripping defences apart. Ronaldo has been hyped up more than he should have been because he is such a good PR player with the model looks. Ronaldo is really just the poster boy for modern day football.

  • LaPulga

    Start to acknowledge that messi is the better player

  • Meystrex

    Ronaldo is the best player who ever lived messi is great but Ronaldo is unreal

  • Harry Hotspur

    Gary's argument is very weak when he suggests Ronaldo is better than Messi because he has scored more penalties 🙄 that stat works in the opposite direction as the penalties are effectively 'free goals' to boost his stats.

    Neville made a point. Ronaldo has done it in 3 leagues with 3 different clubs and excelled even when surrounded by not-world-class players Messi has excelled at Barcelona surrounded by the best midfield of the last decade, Pretty much a flop at Argentina while Ronaldo won the Euro with Portugal! Yes Messi has silky skills but the deeper you look the more you realize that Ronaldo is ahead - even if just by a whisker

  • sj

    Look at how Messi is playing for PSG. Just horrible. Ronaldo proves himself everywhere he goes. Whereas Messi built his stats mostly when he played with players like Xavi and Iniesta. Messi only worked at Barcelona especially when they were at their prime. Ronaldo is the goat.

    "If he's the greatest player ever!, then why wont he win the league" - Jamie Carragher 2021🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️, first thing I learned as a 7 yr old kid was "football is a team effort", cara could be asked the returning question "why didnt Gerrard ever win a league title?" Hint:( dead weight teams not good enough Jamie👀)

  • hamzah 13

    "Ronaldo only scores goals we have seen" I guess it's normal to jump 3m+ in serie a for a header and score long shots at Barcelona for almost a decade. Man utd freekick when the commentator said it was too far for him to hit it. The bicycle kick against juventus. Most dribbles in a single match. I don't know how these are normal things. It's just a preference of play style to be honest. Anyways it's just disrespectful how regarded Ronaldo.

    • Matt Williams

      Messi has better longshots and freekicks.

  • Victor K.

    I expect nothing less from Jimmy. Obviously that Liverpool man will never admit nor accept a United legend as the greatest of all time. Ronaldo got more goals, he cannot challenge that so his only argument is that Ronaldo got more games. That's like someone who's on the bench saying they are the best player because they got less games. Lol

    • Matt Williams
      Matt Williams

      Cristiano has a much lower goals/games ratio dumbass.

    Messi hasn’t done what’s not been done before if Ronaldinho has done the exact same thing


    Cr7 is much better than Messi, look at the stats cr7 is playing in hardest league while Messi is playing in a Sunday football team, Cr7 has won nearly every single football competition except WORLD CUP, he’s won in England,Spain,Italy and for Portugal. Messi hasn’t even scored a goal for PSG while CR7 already has 3 plus PSG team is like a dream team you pick in PS5, to me CR7 is a complete footballer good everywhere.

  • Brandon16Khalifa

    Gary should of gotten out those assist stats. Ronaldo can score but will he have players around him who can pass him the perfect ball. As for Messi he can score but can also dribble pass 3-5 players and can either score or assist

  • Mr PK
    Mr PK

    The only thing we can compare Messi and Ronaldo is Goals that's it, Trophies are Team achievements but Individually we can only compare Goals because Ronaldo is a Complete forward but Messi is a complete Player he doesn't just scores he also creates he is one of the best playmaker the Game has ever seen and that's why he's better then Ronaldo because Ronaldo can't play in the middle of Park while Messi can take the ball from the middle and dribble 4,5 and score or pass to a teammate.

  • Logan 99

    Messi is a Barca player. Ronaldo played at the highest level in 3 top leagues. One is a work of art the other is hard work.

  • TheTruthsayer

    These dude are crazy. CR7 is the greatest of all time. I DON’T CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS.

  • adibox14

    It's as simple as this Ronaldo has done it in Spain, Italy and England so he's shown he can adapt. Messi hasn't. But neither one is better than the other. We just need to appreciate them while they are still playing.

  • Wayne Shone
    Wayne Shone

    Both fantastic players, but the fact that ronaldo has done it in so many leagues and also internationally against much better teams than messi and is still doing it in the best swings it for me, messi arguably has only done it in lesser leagues, Barca and PSG both overwhelmingly the best teams in them leagues and as for the french pub league, well, just a hell of a shame he didn’t have the courage to go to the prem and do it there

    • Wayne Shone
      Wayne Shone

      @Matt Williams I get you, but ronaldo has done it week in week out, btw still doing it week in week out, how’s messi doing in the pub league ? Not too well by all accounts but it’s only a matter of time, I’m not saying messi isn’t a fantastic player because he is, I’d just have liked him to test himself in the best league in the world but that has gone now and it’ll always be the debate

      I mean ronaldo has obviously played more matches than messi so it isn't fair not to include the ratios.

    Garry is right cuz has proven that he can play under any environment he is a great example of any athlete his game has effect thousands of young footballers in the world today from academy level to a season pro Ronaldo carries teams on his back at 36 we are still watching greatness at 36 he is still scoring on his debute while Messi is looking ordinary out of camp noun

    If you can't split them as goalscorers then you certainly split them as playmakers. Nobody seems to mention either that Ronaldo has played 2 more seasons than Messi! Messi can claim to be the greatest goalscorer, playmaker, passer and dribbler of all time. Ronaldo can just claim to be the greatest goalscorer. Messi easy

    I don't agree with Jamie. Messi is not the only one who plays the way he does. Maradona and Pele played similar styles. In terms of ball control, I think Ronaldinho would rank number 1 of all time. It all comes down to attributes when you're trying to separate the better player and that's a long list of attributes not to mention other obvious attributes that Ronaldo has over Messi such as height, speed and strength. To me there is no doubt Ronaldo is currently the best player in the world but Messi isnt too far behind despite his lack of attributes. Whatever it is all us fans are just blessed to witness these two greats making their mark in football.

    Him using penalties as part of his argument.😂

    • bolton mchinga
      bolton mchinga

      It makes me laugh because penalties are so easy. Messi lost copa America twice because of them, Ronaldo(Manchester United) almost lost a Champion league Finals game in 2008 because of them, Ronaldo(Real Madrid) won a Champions league Finals in 2016 because of them, Italy won the 2006 world cup because of them. It requires calm and composure in high pressure situations. Messi and Ronaldo have been both penalty takers for their teams so if one is ahead of the other, it's the other's fault, you don't miss a penalty on purpose. Maybe you do, who knows? But I agree, it doesn't support his argument.
