Twitter Thread Of Footballers Choosing Between Lionel Messi And Cristiano Ronaldo Goes Viral
By Mike Parrott
A social media user 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.
With both arguably holding the No.1 and No.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.

However the best responses were from the likes of Paolo Dybala, Angel Di Maria, Gabriel Heinze, and Ezequiel Garay who all spent time playing with both of them. However, two of them chose Messi, only one for Ronaldo, while Dybala said it was a tie.
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.
