Lionel Messi, who has done a lot in his football career, has also made a lot of records that are higher than those of Cristiano Ronaldo. But this does not mean that Cristiano Ronaldo is any lesser than Messi because the former is also one of the world’s best football players who has taken football to a completely new height.
Although the Barcelona forward has won the title of the world’s best football player five times now, there has not been much debate on whether Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi should win the title of the world’s best player by the fans. We say this because last year when the world’s best football player was declared, Ronaldo was the highest goal scorer, and yet not a lot of people held campaigns for the former Manchester United player and nor did a lot of them support him for Ballon D'Or
What made the judges prefer the Argentine to the Portuguese may be perhaps due to him helping his side win a treble a year before. One of the factors that made Messi different from others is that even with his ligament damaged, he scored a goal in the UEFA Super Cup for his team. This could be one of the reasons why he was announced as the greatest football player in Barcelona.
Further, the goal which he scored in the Copa Del Rey Final has been termed as the best ever goal that he has scored. Along with his skillful goal scoring capacity, he knows the importance of his partnership with Neymar and Luis Suarez. The trio is thought to be the deadliest frontline any team has ever possessed in the history of football.
Even though Messi is hailed as the best football player in the world by plenty, he has yet to deliver a major trophy for his country, Argentina. Only time will tell if he can accomplish that feat before the dawn of his career; if he does then there will be few arguments about him being the best ever player in the history of football surpassing even the likes of legends such as Pele and Maradona.
