Ronaldo vs Messi

Cristiano Ronaldo Vs Lionel Messi Who is better? This is perhaps a subject of one the most heated discussions on the Internet Bloggers Community and on the tons of Sports and Football Forums. Well, Ronaldo and Messi both have their own pluses and minuses and it is really a question of balancing between their on-ground or off-ground talents and football skills.

Now we will take a brief look into each of their career and beginning, before we actually start comparing them.

C. Ronaldo

Ronaldo was born on the 5th February 1985, on the small island of Madeira, which is owned by the Portuguese. Named after Ronald Reagan, due to his father’s respect for the man, few would have gambled that this child would make it to the very top of the Football tree, especially with Madeira mainly being used for farm-land. He has one brother and two sisters, and it is family whom he deems most important in his life at the moment.

At the tender age of 17, Ronaldo was thrown in at the deep end with his first game against Moreirense. Two goals on his first appearance not only gave him his dream debut, but also endeared him to the fans, who soon learnt to chant for the ball to be passed to him. A goal against title-rivals Boavista also saw him rise to the top of the “Fan’s Favorites” list

He then signed with Barclays Premier Team club Manchester United and stayed there until 2009.

Ronaldo was crowned as both the FIFA World Player of the Year and European Player of the Year in 2008.

Ronaldo scored 26 goals in the 2008/09 season, helping United to another Premiership title, and again reached the final of the Champions League in which they lost to Barcelona.

Ronaldo became the world’s most expensive football player following his move from Manchester United to Real Madrid in July 2009 in a £80 million transfer. He was welcome by 80,000 fans in the Santiago Bernabéu stadium during his official presentation.

L. Messi

Lionel Andrés Messi (born June 24, 1987 in Rosario) is an Argentine football (soccer) player.

Lionel Messi started playing football at a very early age in his hometown’s Newell’s Old Boys. From the age of 11, he suffered from a hormone deficiency and as Lionel’s parents were unable to pay for the treatment in Argentina, they decided to move to Barcelona, Spain.

    Ronaldo is faster stronger and a better passer for sure. Messi scored more in the season because CR was injured and in dribbling messi has better control because CR tries new moves.
