Leicester City legend and TV pundit Gary Lineker claims that Lionel Messi is still much better than Cristiano Ronaldo and that the Ballon d’Or awards have not been able to pick the correct option. The pundit came up with this debate after watching Barcelona destroy Real Madrid 3-0 in the latest El Clasico.
Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that the club are lacking the experience, which could drive them forward in the busy end of the campaign. The La Liga holders suffered back-to-back defeats to Girona and Tottenham Hotspur respectively, and this has crept doubts over Los Blancos' title credentials this season.
A household figure in world football for well over a decade, Cristiano Ronaldo is still doing it on the big stage.
The four-time Ballon d’Or/World Player of the Year award winner will go down in history as one of the greatest players to step onto a football pitch and with good reason. He has managed to hold his own at the top of a very competitive sport for over 10 years – Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have been the two dominant figures in football.
Portugal international Andre Silva has heaped praise on his skipper Cristiano Ronaldo, who has managed to silence his critics throughout his professional career.
The four-time Champions League winner is currently serving a five-match domestic ban after he shoved referee Ricardo de Burgos during the first leg of Real Madrid's Spanish Super Cup triumph over Barcelona.
Even Ronaldo's biggest fans struggled not to raise a smirk at the bizarre bronze statue unveiled in his honor this year. While the sculptor could maybe use a little more tuition before taking on their next big project, the good news is that the Portuguese star is going to be the cover boy for the upcoming FIFA 18.
