“Cristiano Ronaldo’s legacy is more complete,” Sky Sports quoted Saha as saying. “When it comes to the quality of a player, Ronaldo can do anything. He doesn’t need as much support from his teammates on the pitch as Messi might ask for. But I still respect Messi’s natural talent. They are too different to be compared.”
Former player Jamie Redknapp believes that Leo winning the 2022 World Cup cannot change the minds of those who feel Ronaldo is better. Redknapp said: “Messi has a natural talent. But others will say Ronaldo works for everything. So if you think Ronaldo is the best in the world, don’t change your mind.”
However, the former Liverpool midfielder concluded: “For me, Messi is the best of all time after winning the 2022 World Cup.”
Ronaldo, 37, has scored 819 goals and provided 266 assists in 1,145 appearances for Portugal, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Juventus and Sporting Lisbon throughout his career.
CR7 is now a free agent after leaving MU last month. Former Juventus striker 5 times won the Golden Ball, collected a total of 34 different big and small titles, most notably 5 Champions League titles, 3 Premier League titles, 2 La Liga, 2 Serie A and the top of EURO 2016 with the Portuguese team.
Meanwhile, Messi completes a collection of noble titles after leading Argentina to a third World Cup title in Qatar. So far, the former Barcelona star has scored 793 goals and has 387 assists in 1,003 matches against Argentina, Barcelona and PSG. His total number of titles reached 42.
