Brazilian legend Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima, also known as Ronaldo, one of the best footballers of his time, described Lionel Messi as the player he likes to watch. Surprisingly, he did not even mention Cristiano Ronaldo when choosing his TOP 5.
Barcelona icon Lionel Messi was a clear nomination of the Brazilian, as well as Mohamen Salah (Liverpool), Eden Hazard (Real Madrid), Neymar and Kylian Mbappe (PSG).
"Messi is so good that it will take at least 20 to 30 years for us to see something similar on the field. This also applies to the other four, whose game I love. Mbappe reminds me of me, he has my speed, a nice finish and great movement, but I don't like to compare players from different generations as the situation changes over time on the field as well, "said Ronaldo.
"People are very one-sided when it comes to the topic of Messi vs Ronaldo. They often choose based on whether they are fans of clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, which I think is okay and I understand that, "he told the BBC.
