Messi V Ronaldo: Brazil Legend Pele Picks His Winner! by HopeAlive14(m): 8:51pm On Jan 18, 2018
Brazilian legend Pele has made his pick between Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi and Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

The three-time World Cup winner is widely regarded to have been the finest player of all-time, with few players able to get close to his legacy.

Messi and Ronaldo are among those from the modern era to have been placed in such a talent bracket, with a pair of eternal rivals having shared 10 Ballons d’Or and countless records between them.

Who, though, is the greatest? That is a debate which has raged for over a decade now, with Pele the latest to offer an opinion.

“I would still stay with Messi. Scoring is important, no doubt, but if you do not have anyone to prepare, then the ball is not enough. For my team I prefer Messi.”

Pele added on the differences between Messi and Ronaldo: "Messi's been the most stable in the last 10 years.

"As for Cristiano Ronaldo, he's a great goalscorer.

"Ronaldo's been able to score goals, while you see Messi creating goals and directing the play, as well as scoring.

"Ronaldo's a great goalscorer but in terms of the complete player, there's no doubt that Messi is the best."
