Cristiano Ronaldo vs Lionel Messi — Instagram stats
Their rivalry started in 2007, I’m not mistaken. Exactly Brazilian Kaka has been chosen as the best football player of this year. And this year was the last, when someone besides Lionel or Cristiano became the best. The next ten years they divided in a half. Each of them has been recognized as the best football player for 5 times. If these two had played in one football club together, it would has become invincible. Their styles nicely compliment each other: Messi is pronounced forward and Ronaldo is attacking midfielder.
How to divide “the great” and “the greatest”, when these athletes were destroying every encroachment on their superiority for ten years. To be the best on a football field even for a few months is unbelievably hard task. But Lionel and Cristiano have pushed the scope of opportunity. Of course, we had Pele and Maradona and others, but now Ronaldo and Messi, and only then, the others. What will be when they will have finished their careers. Perhaps, a history would never provide us with that event, when two football players totally dominate everyone at the same time.
