The online community continued to stir after Ronaldo’s statement “I am the greatest in history, there is no one more perfect than me”.
On social networks, Mr. Julio Salinas, former Atletico Madrid and Barcelona player posted a forum to criticize Ronaldo. He wrote: “You are very good but that does not mean you are the best. You should feel lucky to have been born at the same time as the great Messi. I do not think you are among the best players in history, because there are quite a few. many people are above you. Be satisfied with the Ballon d’Or, even if you don’t deserve it.”
@messi10stats account mocked: “Ronaldo is the best in football history. Probably because Messi plays cricket, Maradona plays tennis, Pele plays basketball, Johan Cruyff plays hockey and Di Stefano plays volleyball.”
“Statistics are very useful to understand and analyze sports, no doubt about that. But you don’t need statistics to know Messi is better than Ronaldo. You just need eyes.”
“It doesn’t matter when Ronaldo wins 10 golden balls in a row. Both statistically and visually on the pitch, you can say Messi is better, and the greatest in history.”
“In 2017, Ronaldo scored goals against Kane, assists lost to Kyle Walker, key pass less than Jesse Lingard, dribbles lost to Lucas Vazquez, number of times won the best player award lost to Benzema. The so-called best in history. there”.
“If you think Ronaldo is better than Messi, you know nothing about football.”
“If you’re good, you beat yourself up. If you’re the best, people praise you. Guess where Ronaldo fell.”
Player Stevie Grieve wrote: “Twenty years later, Ronaldo will be referred to as the modern-day Gerd Mueller. A ruthless scoring machine. Messi is remembered as the banquetteer, able to do unimaginable things every week. . There has never been, or will never be, an adequate comparison between the two.”
The account @fireoddsuk quotes bad boy Joey Barton: “Ronaldo has many unbelievable achievements, but is he the best player in history? I think he is not even the best player in the world. time. Leo Messi is still on top.”
The account @TerraceUltra states the formula: “Real Madrid = Ronaldo + 10 service artists, Barca = 1 team with 11 people including Messi. Ronaldo will never receive the same respect and admiration as Messi, that’s it. That’s why he takes every opportunity to assert himself as the best with the audience.”
