Pele choose one favorite between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. The difficult task of selecting between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo was previously entrusted to Pele. The legendary Brazilian chose Messi, the captain of Argentina. The discussion over who is superior to Messi and Ronaldo, two of the best players of the modern age, will never end. Some people favor Argentines, while others think Portuguese people are the best.

When forced to select between the two, Pele, one of the greatest footballers ever, expressed his dissatisfaction. Other outstanding players, in his opinion, include Johan Cruyff, Zinedine Zidane, Diego Maradona, Zico, and others. The three-time FIFA World Cup champion said in a 2004 interview with SporTV: “It’s awful that there are only two players in the world to select from Johan Cruyff and Diego Maradona. There are currently only two players worldwide. Neymar, correct? Our Brazilian is approaching.”

“Cristiano Ronaldo is the superior goal scorer”, he said. However, Pele believes Lionel Messi is superior to his Portuguese counterpart in terms of being more complete. I would still stick with Messi, the Brazilian concluded. Pele added, “Undoubtedly, scoring is crucial, but if no one is there to help you prepare, the ball will not suffice. I prefer Messi for my team, although Cristiano Ronaldo is also a fantastic goal-scorer.”

While Messi not only leads the play but also creates goals, Ronaldo has been able to score goals. Ronaldo is a fantastic goal scorer, but Messi is without a doubt the finest overall player. At the FIFA World Cup 2022, Ronaldo and Messi are both presents. On Friday, December 9, Messi’s Argentina will play the Netherlands in the quarterfinals, and a day later, Portugal will play Morocco in the last eight.
