Will Messi and Ronaldo play together

Spread the love

The answer is No. Messi & Ronaldo are different kind of players and their styles don’t complement each other. They won’t make a good pair on the pitch.

The biggest problem is that neither of them stick to a position, they both free roam – Messi more so than Ronaldo. It’s beneficial to have a man free roam & take the best position for that time of game, but it will be positional disaster if two forwards do it. Plus they both add nothing to defense, they rarely ever track back, can’t have two forwards slacking on their defensive duties in modern day football.

What Messi says about Ronaldo

Lionel Messi says Cristiano Ronaldo pushed them to become better players and improved the quality of La Liga as a whole.

Ahead of Argentina’s 2019 Copa America campaign, the Barcelona star told Fox Sports about his fond memories of playing against the Portugal international over the past decade.

“It was nice to play against Cristiano, he made Madrid a stronger side. I said at the beginning of the season that Madrid would miss him, as any team would. It made a lot of Madrid fans a bit angry but that is the reality, any team would miss him. He scores 50 goals a season and he was the key player for them, of course they were going to miss that. 

“La Liga misses him as well, having the best players here makes the competition better. He made both of us better players as well. We always wanted to overtake each other. That helped to make La Liga stronger as well.”

Does Ronaldo respect Messi?

Despite their intense rivalry, Messi and Ronaldo have a cordial relationship with one another, but according to Messi, the two are not friends – though it is clear that the two hold mutual respect for one another. Ronaldo’s move to Juventus in 2018 effectively ended the rivalry, but they are still considered to be the two best forwards in world football, the two still pitted against one another for the title of the one true.

Is Ronaldo jealous of Messi

Without doubt yes, but he is not the only one to be jealous of the little fella. I think half of Messi’s Argentine “teammates” are jealous of him. I think Maradona & Pele are jealous of him, especially Pele. Some of the remarks he has made when questioned by journalists about Messi’s brilliance has clearly indicated jealousy. 

Who is faster Messi or Ronaldo?

The answer depends on when you measure it and how.

Ronaldo is a sprinter, he’s fast in long runs and definitely faster than Messi that way when it comes to running on a one on one sprint, Messi is the fastest soccer player alive with a ball in short distances and dribbling through opponents.

Ronaldo has lost a little of his speed and it’s definitely affecting his game. Messi, being a more complete player, doesn’t rely solely on speed, he can still dribble his way through players regardless of speed.

Is Ronaldo better than Messi?

Cristiano Ronaldo just has better shot power. Just look at his legs!

He has the ability to shoot past the goalkeeper from a short distance with high speed which makes it difficult for the goalkeeper to reach. Placement is key as well and Ronaldo has trained hard to make sure he places the ball well into the corner while shooting.

Messi on the other hand has a brilliant curving ability and finesse striking. He is better at free kicks which require precise positioning of the ball in a specific corner of the goal.

Why is Ronaldo more popular than Messi?

Ronaldo is indeed more popular than Messi, and for all the right reasons

1 – Ronaldo has played for two of the most popular and followed football clubs in the world, Man Utd and Real Madrid (sparing Juventus)..These two clubs have huge fan base around the world and Ronaldo rightfully got his fair share of fanbase from this (Not to forget Man Utd is the most popular football club in the world by far)

2 – EPL is a more popular league than La Liga which also contributed in Ronaldo’s popularity to some extent… Messi never played in EPL.
