Cristiano Ronaldo Thinks He Is The Greatest Footballer Of All Time
Lionel Messi was voted the greatest footballer of all time last year, beating the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Pele and Diego Maradona to the prestigious title in our Twitter poll.
But someone in that list clearly has something to say about that.
In the four way poll, 26,104 people voted for their GOAT on Twitter, with five-time Balon d'Or winner Messi coming out on top with 44% of the vote.
That man Cristiano Ronaldo was a close second, receiving 36% of the vote while Pele and Diego Maradona came in third and fourth with 15% and 5% of the vote, respectively.
Despite the above results the debate as to whether Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo is the true GOAT will never be resolved among fans.
That being said, Cristiano Ronaldo gave his thoughts on the comparison via an Instagram Live, last night, proudly announcing that he is, in fact, the greatest of all time.
Check out the five-time Balon d'Or winner on his Instagram story below. "Well, yes I am the GOAT, C'MON!"

The Argentinian did, however, add fuel to the fire thanks to the marvelous photography of Carles Carabí.
The GOAT label is often thrown around on social media and Cristiano Ronaldo's latest Instagram post promoting some of his favourite Nike trainers once again sparked the debate.
