"I'm a fan of Ronaldo, but there's nothing to discuss about the best player in history." Lineker about Messi
"Like Michael Jordan in basketball, Messi is the best of those who have played football so far.
Now Messi is compared to Cristiano Ronaldo, not Maradona. The controversy over Messi and Ronaldo is very heated.
As a rule, the choice depends on the team you support - "Barcelona", "Real", "Juventus" or whoever. This is normal, I understand that.
I'm a big fan of Ronaldo, but if we're talking about the best player in history, which shouldn't be a matter of discussion, it's Messi.
Many criticize Messi for the fact that his achievements are only related to "Barcelona", while Ronaldo has won titles in different countries, but I find this argument strange.
Messi, of course, played with great partners at Barcelona, but always showed great statistics, whoever is next to him.
Even in the last few seasons, when Barcelona was not as strong as before, its investment has not diminished at all. On the contrary, it would be a real mess.
Messi is considered one of the best football players in the world. He has played for Barcelona all his career, and it is difficult to imagine that he will leave the Catalan club in the future.
However, everyone, even the best, has an army of haters. Thus, people are of the opinion that "in England, Messi will simply fade away" or "he will not be able to stand British football physically," said Lineker.
