Twitter Thread Of Footballers Choosing Between Lionel Messi And Cristiano Ronaldo Goes Viral

By Mike Parrott

A user on Twitter has collated every interview the top players and managers in football have said over the years in regards to the debate of Cristiano Ronaldo vs Lionel Messi, and the results are staggering.

The Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo debate has been going on since at least 2007, 13 years ago.

After both of them finished in the top two of the 2008 Ballon D'Or award, one of them has won the award 11 out of the last 12 years (Luka Modric is the controversial outlier).

With both arguably holding the #1 and #2 spots in the greatest of all-time rankings, many players and managers over the years have been asked who they would pick over the other as the greatest.

A Twitter user has compiled a thread of this exact thing, collating over 100 answers from the footballing greats including the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Harry Redknapp, Pep Guardiola, and Robin Van Persie.

There was obvious bias from the likes of Guardiola, Sir Alex Ferguson, Xavi, and Carlo Ancelotti.

The end result though was staggeringly in favour of Messi with him getting a total of 103-34 over Ronaldo.

Even though all these players have said that Messi is the superior player, we can all agree that we are incredibly lucky to watch the two greatest players of all time play in the same era.
