Ronaldo is prettier, that's about it! I'm sure he spends about an hour preening himself before he comes out to play!! Only joking.....it's probably only about 20 minutes!
Seriously dude. You're right.....you are on a different planet!
In 20 or 30 years time the only Ronaldo that will be spoken about will be the Brazilian version! Cristiano Ronaldo is a very good player, but if we were talking the greatest players of all time he may just about make the top 20!
Messi plays for Barcelona! Ronaldo plays for Ronaldo! He went to Man U for money, then to Real Madrid for money,he'll be off somewhere else in a season or two, for money!
Here's a concession for you! Ronaldo is arguably a little better in the air. That's it! Nil else.
As you asked, here's the reasons Messi is better! He makes more goals, scores more goals, is a better passer, a better finisher, a better dribbler, a better decision maker, a better tackler, a much harder worker for the team. AND, when the big games come along he always plays well! Ronaldo usually disappears!
Yes, Ronaldo does more tricks, and while he's doing them he's going nowhere! He just likes to show off! Messi can do tricks, he just doesn't need tricks. It is a real pleasure to see a young man who plays the game the right way. He has honesty and has integrity, something Ronaldo doesn't appear to have, judging by the amount of diving and cheating he does in every game. Diving ruins football and most football fans hate it!
Put it this way, football is a team game and Messi plays for his team. Ronaldo plays for himself! Open your eyes and remove your Madrid coloured spectacles, and enjoy the phenomenon of Lionel Messi, the likes of which you may never see again!
Oh, and if you think tricks are what makes greatness then take a look on You-Tube. There are guys on there that would put Ronaldo and Messi to shame!
