He doesn’t.

Ronaldo is the GOAT. Messi has always played in teams with world class players.

Mbappe is better than Sancho
Neymar is better than Martial/Pogba/Greenwood.



Playing in one off games against PL sides after getting a rest over the weekend is different from facing them week in week out.


If David Silva, Fabregas, Aguero, Torres and the likes can do it in England then I am certain Messi at City or Liverpool will do 3 times more damage...

None of these players have Ronaldo’s numbers . Which of them scored 42 goals in one season while winning PL/CL and the golden boots in those 2 competitions?

Ronaldo is the last PL player to win Ballon d’Or. Why hasn’t any player in your list come close to winning it if it’s piece of cake?

Ronaldo is the GOAT, bro.

Ronaldo went from Rooney, Tevez, Berbatov, Scholes, Giggs to Benzema, Modric, Kroos, Marcelo, Casillas etc to Chiellini, Bonucci, Dybala etc to Pogba, Fernandez, Varane, Cavani etc Bottom line is that they have always been supported by the best players in their respective leagues...

How many players in this list made top 5 in Ballon d’Or ranking?

There was a time Iniesta and Xavi were dragging top 3 with Messi and Ronaldo. That’s the difference.

The one Modric won was just politics in play because Ronaldo fell out with Florentino Perez and he got punished for abandoning the ship for Juventus.

Even currently, Messi has better players surrounding him in a farmer’s league in comparison to upstarts like Greenwood or Martial.

If Messi doesn’t score 90 goals this season, questions need to be asked from this trio. cheesy

No one said Messi won’t have any impact in the PL. The debate is if he would get the Barca numbers in the PL.

So you have to remove the Xavi/Iniesta factor from his career and replace it with McFred.

Ronaldo had Scholes, Giggs, Rooney, Tevez, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra and others when he produce those numbers...With such quality, Messi will do same or even more...

As of now, we still have Bruno, Pogba, Sancho, Cavani, Varane, Shaw etc...

Modric won it...

The thing is that whilst the trio look fantastic on paper, they're not quite of the same wavelength on the pitch...Before Messi's goals tonight, he had tried that move severally but Mbappe will rather attempt to take on many players and lose the ball. Too many big egos in that attack and it's hampering the team.

These are tier B players.

None of them compares to the quality Messi had at Barcelona.

You are comparing Rooney and Tevez to someone that has had Ronaldinho, Etoo, David Villa, Suarez, etc as team mates.

The level at Barcelona was always higher.

No matter how bad their wavelength is, it can’t be as bad as playing next to Greenwood and Sancho. Neymar is Neymar, Mbappe is Mbappe.

Should we add the trophies won on both sides of the coin and tabulate? If Ronaldo had Mbappe/Neymar against Villa or Young Boys, he would get a hat trick in both games.

From the game today, did you see any sequence of play that suggested Ronaldo would have scored a hattrick of goals? Who will create the chances for him? Neymar that wants to be the star of the show or Mbappe that is himself struggling to score?

All those crosses coming from the flanks would find Ronaldo.

Verratti, Herrera will find Ronaldo.

Hell, he’s scored 4 goals playing with McFred. Imagine how many he would get with proper technical players like the PSG boys.

When he was at Barca the excuse was Messi is carrying them singlehandedly with no support. Now even at Psg with Mbappe and king Neymar who has been thriving without Messi the excuse has become too many egos in the team and attack because they are not bowing to lick Messi ass. Messi fans are jokers.

And before you say Messi was the reason those two midfielders were that high up, let it be known those duo won big trophies for Spain without Messi between 2008-2012.

It’s almost as if Messi actually needed them than they ever needed Messi. At no point in Ronaldo’s career has he ever had this level of brilliant players around him.

This is 2010 & 2011 Ballon d’Or Rankings. Barcelona boys dominated it again and again.

You're just saying nonsense.

Shebi Xavi and Iniesta also played for Argentina when Messi won the following:

Copa America.
Copa America best player (3X).
Copa America highest assister (2X)
Copa America highest goalscorer and
World Cup MVP

Right?

Don't forget that Ronaldo has never been the best player in any international tournament even with his 1000000 international goals shocked grin.

That KDB tackle reinforces the subjectiveness of refereeing decisions.

It’s difficult not to see racism in football. If Bissaka got a red for his tackle, why didn’t KDB get one?
KDB could have gotten a red. But he doesn't deserve it 100%. They both went in 50-50. It happens.

What makes Bissaka own a bit different is that he went studs in like that after losing the ball from a poor control. That's always a red.

One trophy for the national team since 2005.

CONMEBOL had to be bribed heavily to keep hosting the event every year to give Messi a chance of winning it.

We are talking European championship and you bring COPA America to the discourse. A competition of 3 or 4 good teams with Brazil as the only obstacle for Argentina.

Mere mortals like Uruguay and Chile won it under Messi’s nose but he’s suddenly great because he finally won one this year. cheesy grin

Ronaldo has to face France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Croatia, etc every 4 years to have a chance of winning with his country.

Copa America is a worse competition than Nations Cup in the continent of Africa. A competition of 10 teams is no competition. If Ronaldo was born an Argentinian, he would have won it 5 times by now.

Ronaldo is the GOAT.
