  1. It is so dumb to say "Ronaldo" right now… he's awsome he's one of the greatest of all time maybe he's the greatest…
    But right now… no way !!! They surely doesn't watch la liga

  2. Ronaldo can play in holding midfield??? Hutchison is an abysmal pundit, I shudder to think how much Burley and him are paid to offer half baked nonsense

  3. Don Ronaldo can play in holding midfield and left and right 🤣🤣🤣 Messi literally playing from the deep and goes everywhere on the field still getting goals and assists Evry match 😂😂😂 ….. Plz someone send him a heat map

  4. Football is lucky.
    Every other sport compares someone retired to a current great (eg Jordan vs Lebron)…yet here we have 2 legends STILL in the game. It will be a sad day for football when these guys retire

  5. Messi is better than Ronaldo in almost 60-70% of the stats and is a much better player to watch which should make him the undisputed G.O.A.T. The reason there is a debate even is because of Ronaldo's goals in big games especially in the champions league. In the latter stages of the UCL(QF,SF and Final) CR7 has 42 goals to Messi's 20 goals. Cristiano has won 5 UCL's to Messi's 4 and Ronaldo has been the best player in his team and the competition in each of those 5 years whereas Messi has been the best player in his team only in 3 of those 4 triumphs. Ronaldo has won the golden boot, best player award and the league in each of the top 3 leagues. Whereas Messi has done it only in Spain( This argument doesn't mean that I think Messi won't excel in the PL or Serie A it's just to say that Ronaldo has a more competitive mindset to prove himself maybe that's because he might also know deep down Messi is a genius) . All in all both deserve to be among the G.O.A.T's of the game!

  6. Right after they choose ronaldo over messi. Messi ended up winning ballon dor . Kudos and thanks to shaka. You are right 😃😃
