MessiIsTheBest

Pro

The argument that I present is simple, Lionel Messi is the best player in the world. Even better than Ronaldo. Ronaldo is a very good player, no doubt in that but he cant touch Messi's level of playing. The things that Messi has achieved is something that no player is in history has ever done, and most likely, ever will.

All kinds of views are welcome

P.S - no noobs please.

Even though I am a big fan of both, Cristiano is the best footballer in this era. There are three main points why he is BETTER than Messi.

Physically, Ronaldo has perfect body. It is true that both have agility, cleverness, technique in the top level. However, in terms of Strength of the body, Ronaldo outweighs Messi in this point. While Messi usually dribbles with only agility, Ronaldo is able to do so not only with just agility but also with balance of the body and strength in tackling with defenders. Moreover, the strength of body also plays an essential role in maintaining condition when footballers are older. It is inevitable that footballers with agility will be much more slower when they are more than 33 years old. As we can see in the case of Shevchenko, Owen and Ronaldo (Brazilian Footballer), they were well-known in agility. Although, they were regarded as the top performer in his ages, their performance were significantly drop once they get older due to decease in speed. I would like you guys to imagine Messi without his speed and pace in the upcomming future. He could be just an ordinary football. On the other hand, Ronaldo, with his ideal body, could still remain in the top role by his strength in body together with his technique, finishing instinct, and determinations. You can see that this year that he is 33, he still play in the top performance.

To sum up, both of them are the best when there were 20-30 years old. But later on, I don't believe that Messi will keep his performance in track, but Ronaldo will. So, that's why he is the best of best.
