Pele say : »Lionel Messi is more complete than Cristiano Ronaldo »
When it came to choosing between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, football legend Pele was sure about who his most loved is.
The Brazilian went for the Barcelona star, saying that Messi is « more complete » than his Portuguese rival.
In quotes made to television channel SporTv in his native Brazil, Pele guaranteed that « Messi’s been the most steady over the most recent 10 years. As for Cristiano Ronaldo, he’s a great goalscorer. »
He included: « Ronaldo’s possessed the capacity 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 uncertainty that Messi is the best. »
Pele previosuly talked about Ronaldo in September, when he tested him to « score more than 1283 goals » in reference to how many he had scored in his own career.
