Both players has been phenomenal this season scoring goals in every angle and done so lethally.
Now, our question is, if you’re happen to be a manager in the world’s most influential football club, which of these highly decorated players would you choose to be listed on your team? Well, let’s take a rough look on the players.
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 17 goals this season and assisted 3 times. But, it does not give you a whole picture of the Portuguese superstar.
Ronaldo is very strong player which has been give a nudge by his almost perfect physical build. He can take on any defender with excellent pace, and skilled footwork to boot.
His ability to dribble past player and put in good crosses makes him defender’s worst nightmare. That’s not even the good part, add that to that the way his free-kicks curls with pace and power and this explosive winger would be an maestro to any team, past and present.
On the other hand, Lionel Messi has slotted in 16 goals this season and helped his teammates 12 times, considerably more than Ronaldo on the assists side.
While “Little” Messi won’t possessed the height of Ronaldo’s, his talent is beyond everyone could have imagined in the past. This has been evident with him being regarded as the world’s best player on almost every awards out there last season.
The reason is because his ball skills are second to none, his runs from midfield are usually amazing and he is nearly impossible to tackle when he gets his head down. His balance when running at speed is top-notch.
So, who will you choose?
