Ex Atletico Madrid player, Arda Turan has come out to say that Lionel Messi is better than Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Turkish midfielder recently came out to hail Lionel Messi’s all-round game as a footballer.
According to him, Messi is present in every moment of football and he always dictates the game in every aspect on the pitch.
He added that even if Ronaldo is also a brilliant goalscorer who has intelligence, vision and passing going for him, Messi is definitely better.
His words, “Messi is present in every moment of football. He can dictate the game in every aspect,”
“There’s nothing bad to say about Ronaldo but he’s a goalscorer, albeit a very special one. Messi does everything in this game. He does things you can’t even imagine to do. His intelligence, his vision, his passing are all much different. And every person I have talked to about this agrees with me.
“Except the people who are close to Ronaldo, his team-mates, who say it’s Ronaldo as they answer politically. Ronaldo is my friend and it’s not my place to question his quality. But I think Messi is better.”
