Cristiano Ronaldo vs Lionel Messi: Pele Names The Better Player

share on:

Football legend Pele has weighed on the argument on who’s better between the top 2 players of the current generation, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

In Pele’s opinion, Barcelona ace Messi is the better player.

“At the moment people always try to compare Ronaldo with Messi [but] it’s a different style,” the three-time World Cup winner told the BBC’s Sportsweek.

The 74-year-old added: “They are two great players, but in the past 10 years the best in the world was Messi.”

Pele continued: “Bobby Charlton, Bobby Moore, George Best – they were the same level as Messi. We had in Brazil Zico, Rivaldo.”

  1. Pele is wright, not because its Pele, If you watch the two player style of playing you will see Lionel Messi work for his goal not only that if he is in a better position he makes his goal For Christiano Ronaldo he wait to be in a better position to make his goal while other player do the hard job for him
