There has been a massive debate going on for the past few years now, in regards to which soccer star is the best player in the world and it always comes down to two players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. When it comes to this debate, there are those who prefer Ronaldo and those who prefer Messi and it is actually very difficult to separate the two of them.
A lot of people like to throw stats and figures out there, as to how many goals each player has scored along with how many assists they have to go alongside it, with others even going as far as to break down the stats even further. There are some people who go as far as to analyse how many goals the two stars have scored with their left foot, right foot, and head, insisting that this shows which is better.
Rather than throwing stats and figures at you, we are simply going to give you our opinion of who we think is the better player between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, as well as our reason for it. While we encourage you to give us your own opinion on the matter in the comments section and encourage debate, try to keep it nice people, there is no real right or wrong answer.
Anyway, we would have to say that the best player between the two stars would have to be Cristiano Ronaldo, for the simple fact that he has proven himself in the English Premier League, which is regarded as the best league in the World, while Lionel Messi has never left Barcelona, so has never been out of his comfort zone.
We would love to see Lionel Messi make the move to the English Premier League in the future, just to see how the player would cope with a fixture away at Stoke on a freezing cold Winter evening. Until Messi moves out of his comfort zone and proves himself in the best league in the World, we would have to say that Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player on the planet.
Who do you think is better out of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo?
