Both are gone from Europe, but they are still talked about in connection with their great performances. Lionel Messi will probably take home another Ballon d’Or soon, but the best player in the world according to his former coach is Cristiano Ronaldo.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi ruled world football for many years. But the Portuguese star has been on the wane in recent years, albeit now shining in Saudi Arabia. It was the Argentine who still dominated the World Cup, finishing the season in Paris and eventually leaving for the USA.
Both are shining at their clubs outside Europe, both scoring goals or making assists. Either way, they attract a lot of attention and most fans watch them at least closely.
Now, however, football in the Middle East is in full swing. So, while Messi can indulge in a somewhat more relaxed mode in terms of competitive football, Ronaldo in an Al-Nasser jersey is fighting for important wins.
After returning from the national team, in whose jersey he made four appearances, he scored three times in two duels for his club. He also impressed former PSG coach Christophe Galtier, who also managed Messi in Paris.
Ronaldo is the best in the world, Galtier is clear
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 14 competitive goals for the club this season alone, adding 7 assists. He needed just 13 games to do all that. At 38 years old, excellent form, whatever the competition.
The Portuguese has made no secret of his desire to reach the 1,000 goal mark, but his current target is 900. Overall, he would like to play until he is 40, and one of his sons wants to play with him.
According to many experts, the best player is Lionel Messi, who will probably win his eighth Ballon d’Or this year, while Ronaldo has only five. But according to former PSG coach Christophe Galtier, who also managed the Argentine, it is the Portuguese who is the best.
“When you face him, you can’t do much against him. I lack the words to describe him. What he is doing is extraordinary at 38 years old. He is still thebest player in the world,” Galtier is quoted by Goal.
