Cristiano Ronaldo’s consistency makes me rate him ahead of Lionel Messi as the world’s best player, Pele has said.
Pele, however, believes both players are not as good as he was in his prime.
According to him, Ronaldo edges it when it comes to the greatest player of this generation because of his goalscoring prowess even if it is still a difficult choice.
He added that Ronaldo is the most consistent player out there even if Messi is completely unforgettable.
His word, “Right now I think Cristiano Ronaldo is the most consistent player out there, but you can’t forget about Messi,”
“That’s a tough question to answer. I’ve been asked many times.
“We mustn’t forget Zico and Ronaldinho. People always talk about European players like [Franz] Beckenbauer and [Johan] Cruyff.
“It’s not my fault, but I think I was better than all of them. There will only be one Pele. There won’t be anyone else like me.”
