Football: Differences Between Lionel Messi And Christiano Ronaldo
Differences between Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo. Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo are presently the two best players in the World.
Both of them have been able to retain their positions of being the world best players for a long period of time.
Though there are similarities between the two professional players but the purpose of this article is to discuss about their differences.
Messi is a senior player at Barcelona while Ronaldo plays for Juventus. They play from different positions at their clubs and international levels. With the contributions of their teammates, they always play a significant role in all football matches they play at their respective clubs and international levels.
Other Differences Between Them Include;
1. Messi is only a professional player who knows how to make contributions to the success of his team while Ronaldo does not only make contributions to the success of his team but also with his experiences of leadership knows how to improve the performances of his teammates.
2. Messi is a natural gifted professional player who is always the best at what he does since he started his football career but Ronaldo is an hardworking professional player who always try as much as possible to give his best whenever he is needed.
3. Lionel Messi is very much better at distributing accurate passes to other teammates during football matches but what Ronaldo knows how to do better is to play accurate shots towards the goal post though he does not have enough accuracy at distributing passes to his teammates.
4. Messi have not scored up to the number of hat tricks Ronaldo has scored though the difference is not much. About 111 hat trick have been scored by the two professional players (Combined).
5. Messi has been able to score more free kicks than Ronaldo. This is possible and very easy because Messi has curl but Ronaldo only has power to play shots though he knows how to score free kicks too.
6. Ronaldo has been able to score more penalty kicks than Messi since they started their football careers as professional players.
7. Christiano Ronaldo has scored more goals altogether than Lionel Messi. Ronaldo has scored about 750 goals while Messi has just scored about 710 goals altogether.
8. Messi has been able to win more ballon d’or than Christiano Ronaldo. Messi has won 6 while Ronaldo has won 5 altogether.
As time passes by, I’m very much sure that Christiano Ronaldo will be able to perform better than Messi and would have the privilege to win the ballon d’or award more than Messi.
My love for CR7 is immeasurable because he is an hardworking player. Messi should however continue to give his best as a gifted player.
