For the past two decades, the major argument in the world of comparing the excellence of football players have centered on the distinct professional performances of Cristiano Ronaldo and that of Lionel Messi.
While many football fans could not hide their feelings and regards of excellence for Cristiano Ronaldo, they mostly believe that the politics of football favor Messi while Ronaldo continues to prove the political actors wrong, every day.
Like for instance, Lionel Messi had collected more Ballon D'or Award that Cristiano Ronaldo but majority of football lovers sight more capacity in Ronaldo to hold to the record than Lionel Messi.
Base of the argument has been Ronaldo's complete football skills, and ability and agility to excell with little to no support from his team mates.
Real Madrid and Barcelona, over the years have been a team of all best players, hence it was difficult to lay to rest, the argument of unveiling the best between the two players.
The moment Cristiano Ronaldo moved to Juventus, many football lovers saw it as opportunity to withdraw from the contest and gave the crown to Messi. However, the presence of Ronaldo on the pitch was always a victory, to the extent that he brought Juventus from grass to grace.
This intensified the calls among Ronaldo's supporters that Messi was only capitalizing on the strength of Barcelona.
The moment Lionel Messi decided to step out of Barcelona's Camp Nou to French League, people were happy, it was time to know who is who in the world of football. However, Ronaldo continued to push forth while Messi remained toothless.
Many people argued that Italian Seria A and French Bundesh Liga were too big to justify the eminence of Ronaldo vs Messi on the pitch. Then, another opportunity came when Ronaldo decided to join Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia with Lionel Messi moving to Inter Miami in United States of America.
Ronaldo is doing fantastically alright Saudi Arabia while Messi still continue to strive in the American league.
This might have put an end to the age long conversation trying to justify the degree of excellence in the personalities of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the world of playing fantabulous football. Cristiano Ronaldo has forever proven himself to be what he is, the best, regardless of the calibre of players that surround him.
