Over the years, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been compared with each other by the use of different stats, which include trophies and goals scored. Yesterday the Portuguese performance on his second debut showed he is not on the same level with Lionel Messi based on goalscoring ability. The article states two things Cristiano Ronaldo did yesterday on his Manchester United debut to debunk the claims that he is on the same level as the Argentine national team captain.
1. Cristiano Ronaldo scored on his second debut while Lionel was not able to score in his Paris Saint-German debut.
Although, most of us know that Lionel Messi did not start for Paris Saint-German on his debut instead he comes on as a substitute but the fact remains that he was unable to register a goal on his debut but Cristiano Ronaldo did.
2. The Portuguese international went straight into the top 5 of the EPL goalscorers list after scoring 2 goals on Manchester United debut yesterday.
Lionel Messi is neither on the scoreboard for his club or the goalscorers list in the Ligue 1 but Cristiano Ronaldo broke into these two lists on his second debut for Manchester United.
For me, Cristiano Ronaldo is the real ‘Greatest player of all time in the past of football.
What is your take on this?
