Reasons why almost everyone and Mesut Özil chooses Ronaldo over Messi.

The Portuguese footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo, and an Argentine professional footballer, Lionel Messi have both had incredible careers. Cristiano Ronaldo has just become the greatest goal scorer ever. The 35-year-old scored the 79th goal of his career on Sunday evening when he netted in the 92nd minute for Juventus against Sassuolo. That goal, achieved by Ronaldo, means he is now tied with Josef Bican for most goals ever scored in professional football.


The captain of the Portugal national team is so much more than a goal scorer. Earlier in his career, Ronaldo had an electric pace and despite being into his 30s, he is still quick now. He is strong and the most unique things are his physical attribute and off-the-ball movement that separates him from others.

On the other hand, Lionel Messi is a slightly different player. As he is shorter in stature, not as quick, and nowhere near as stronger as Ronaldo. But his technical abilities and his incredible skills with the ball at his feet are out of this world. To choose between these two, was the question that hasn’t stopped many big names in the world of football from getting involved in the debate, though.

When Mesut was asked the same question, he makes his choice in the favor of Ronaldo. This German midfielder had played with Ronaldo at Real Madrid. They already had a telepathic connection between them as they combined for a plethora of goals.
