Video Of Cristiano Ronaldo And Lionel Messi With Their Weaker Feet Shows How Good They Are
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the two best footballers on the planet and video proves that even with their 'wrong' feet the pair can still score some incredible goals.
Whilst most people can only wish to be as good as the two five time Ballon d'Or winners with their best feet the pair are actually better than most with their weaker foot.
Ronaldo's left and Messi's right might not be their best but this video shows how good they can still be with them:
As far as a percentage of their goals goes the Barcelona superstar certainly relies on his stronger foot more often than his rival.
According to Michael Acosta, who analyses the battle between the two stars, Messi scores 83% of his goals with his left foot.
That means that over eight of every 10 goals he scores comes from his stronger foot, with just over 13% of the goals coming from his right foot.
Unsurprisingly he doesn't score too many with his head either with just 24 of his 672 career goals coming off of his 'noggin.'
In comparison Ronaldo bags just 63% of his goals with his stronger, right, foot, another 18% comes off his left foot and 18% coming from his head.
The Juventus forward has scored exactly the same amount of goals with his left foot as he has his head, with 127 goals each of his career 699 strikes.
Both men have scored with other body parts too. They each have a goal with their hand or arm whilst Messi has one with his chest and Ronaldo once put the ball in the back of the net with his penis.
The penis goal came for Manchester United against Aston Villa from close range, with the former Real Madrid man turning his body into the ball as it jumped up and hit him in the special region.
On Saturday Jose Mourinho revealed he believed it wasn't Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi who were the best player ever, instead naming Ronaldo Nazario as the best ever, saying, "If we are talking strictly about talent and skill, nobody surpasses Ronaldo [Nazario]. When he was at Barcelona with Bobby Robson, I realised that he was the best player I'd ever seen take to the field."
But was the Brazilian quite as good with his weaker foot?
