Who is better between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi? The debate has been going on for the last 10 years in the world of football. Brazilian great footballer Pele has backed Messi to be better in his debate. He said that he would choose Lionel Messi of Argentina instead of Ronaldo of Portugal.
Pelé said this in a conversation with former India captain Bhaichung Bhutia. Veteran footballer Pele said that many people compare him to George Best, but there is a difference in the style of both, and similarly difference is there between Messi and Ronaldo. Pelé won the title of FIFA World Cup for the first time with Brazil in 1958. After this, the title was defended in 1962. In the captaincy of Pelé in 1970, Brazil had once again captured the FIFA World Cup title.
In a media group media summit, Pelé said, “If I decide on my team, then I’ll choose Messi instead of Ronaldo. Messi and Ronaldo are difficult to compare. Messi’s style is completely different from Ronaldo. Many people compare me to George, but our way of playing was different. Ronaldo is more center-forward, while Messi is a more balanced player. ‘
Three-time World Cup champion Pele said about the change in the game of football, “Football has not changed anything in the field. The biggest change has come in the features. We did not have such great facilities. ‘
