Ronaldo great goalscorer but Messi best ever: Pele

Latest UpdatesRonaldo great goalscorer but Messi best ever: Pele

NEW DELHI: The world is divided into two kinds of people: Cristiano Ronaldo fans and Lionel Messi fans.
It’s difficult to convince each set of fans about the superiority of the other. Virtual mini-riots between Ronaldo and Messi fans on social media over the debate are a commonplace.
Apart from the diehard fans, several experts including former and current footballers have had their say on the raging debate. Now, another footballing legend, who many would argue dwarfs both the Portuguese and the Argentine together with what he has achieved during a glittering career, has entered the fray.
Brazilian great Pele has a crystal-clear opinion on whom he considers the best ever – Lionel Messi.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is a great goalscorer, but Messi is the best,” Pele has said, according to a report in Sport.
Moreover, ‘The Black Pearl’, winner of a record three FIFA World Cup titles pele-settles-messi-v-ronaldo-debate(1958, 1962, 1970), also said that Messi has been the most consistent player in the past 10-15 years.”You mention several names, but from the last 10 or 15 years, I think Messi’s been the most consistent player, without doubt,” he said.
To Pele, CR7 reminds him of compatriot Ronaldo for his goalscoring abilities but believes that Mess is better due to his allround play. “You could mention others, like Cristiano Ronaldo, who’s a great goalscorer, he reminds me of Ronaldo. In the end, Ronaldo score goals and you see Messi giving assists and creating play, as well as scoring.
“In terms of being a complete player, there’s no doubt that Messi is the best.”
