    Messi has won more titles since he plays for a better team, not because he is a better player than Ronaldo. Throughout his entire career, Messi played for arguably the best side to ever play the game. Unlike Ronaldo’s team experiences, Messi’s Barcelona teammates know each other blindly, since most of them have played together since they were 10 years old, always the same style and formation and suarez and neymar both were with him at one time.
    This is not to say that Ronaldo’s teammates were bad. They were great, but just not as great as Messi’s. For example, Messi has played with Xavi Hernandez and Andrés Iniesta, two of the most dominating center-midfielders of our era. While Messi has the added value of an unforgettable team, Ronaldo is the driving factor of his. Messi is like Tim Duncan of the Spurs, while Ronaldo is like LeBron James in Cleveland.
    Nowadays, soccer is more dynamic and athletic than ever. The game has become faster, stronger and more demanding in most aspects of physicality. While Messi might have more talent, Ronaldo’s combination of physical and technical abilities just makes him better. He is 6’’1 of pure Portuguese muscle. This means he’s very hard to push off the ball and, combined with his NBA star-like jumping ability, makes his headers a serious threat. Ronaldo’s combination of dizzying pace, great dribbling and powerful shooting with either foot terrorizes defenses.
    He is simply a better fit for today’s game. His athleticism is second to none; he combines dizzying pace with powerful shooting and a jumping ability of an NBA star, which makes his headers a serious threat to the opposition. Ronaldo, more than Messi, is the ideal model of the next generation of players.
    Ronaldo’s international career puts him on a higher level than Messi. In fact, Messi has never won an international trophy. He lost finals in both the Copa America (the South America championship) and the World Cup. Meanwhile, Ronaldo led his Portugal side to win the 2016 European Championship. Even if Messi ever leads Argentina to win the Copa America, Ronaldo’s international achievements will be considered greater. Unlike other sports, international trophies in soccer are the ultimate glory. His three World Cup trophies fixed Pele’s stature as the best player ever, and Diego Maradona winning it for Argentina puts him before Messi.
    The greatest goalscorer, the greatest winger, the greatest aerial player, the greatest athlete, the greatest mentality, the most complete player, the most entertaining player, the most generous & unselfish player outside the picth, the best football player in the history, CR7 The king Goat 🔥

    Im not even a Barca fan but in there theres no comparison as Football players theres no one close to Messi, CR7 fans can complain all they like Messi is on another level himself. But on Cristiano he has more grit, sheer determination passion and leadership qualities than Messi or anyone in the world thats why hes at his level. But Messi will always be the best indivudual player on the planet and probably all time

    Messi doesn’t care if he is the best or not. He just plays his 101%. He is very humble. 💕💕💕

    Why Ronaldo is the best player of the world? Random guy: Because he is the best player of the world; These random guys seem clueless, they just know they have to claim the superiority of Ronaldo over Messi no matter what.

    if it is true that all clubs coaches vote for ballon dor den no way ronaldo can win ballon dor,2018 ballon dor and 2015,i can see clearly why ronaldo was not the winners,many big coaches know them self that they are voting on faverits not stats,messi top scores in champions league with 12 goals and did not make the finals,ronaldo top scores 15/16,16/17.17/18 win champions league three straight years,hat tricks against atlitic and scores hat trick in world cup,only two coaches i guarentee will vote for ronaldo,1,zidane,2,ancelotti,,all the rest were distroved by ronaldo in champions leagues,ronaldo is the cause of those coaches not lifting the champions league,and they show it,but god keep showering his blessing on ronaldo,because he know that those men have hatrige for the king of football,dont be suprise next year the take shame out of their eyes and give ronaldo ballon dor,i believe that never chris will go ahead with winning ballon dor more than messi,ronaldo have done what no other players ever do in the history of football,win trophies for all the clubs that he plays and for his country,only messi see and acknledge that cr7 is better than him and he said that he realise that ronaldo have been hate by so many people,coach comontaters and even players that feel the blunt of cr7,by his headers left foot goals and right foot goals,the all accounted for over 100 each of goals,no other player so powerful,god bless the football king,cris ronaldo,

    I feel like Virgil should’ve won, if you look at his last season he barely made mistakes and he’s the best defender in the world rn. Just because a player doesn’t score goals doesn’t mean he’s worse than others. Virgil saved his team(s) so many times just like Messi did

    Messi won Ballon for being a top scorer in a league where Barcelona's opponents are only 3 teams.
    Ronaldo won Serie A and Nation's League.
    Van Dijk and Mane had very good seasons .. international and league wise plus CL.
    This was stolen from Van Dijk, Mane and CR7.

    Joke of the century?Ronaldo is the most creative player😃.I think it's a disgrace to the sense of football comparing Ronaldo to Messi.Messi is a pure genius who's got the vision,creativity and above all the sheer acumen of the game.In my opinion Neymar,Hazard,Mbappe,Kane,Mane,Salah(and a plethora of players) are much better than Ronaldo.

    This is unfair
    No matter who you are if you didn’t perform beyond everyone else then you should Not be awarded.
    Messi is at one club for his entire career; he never won a World Cup and has Not won the champions league since 2015, so why is he being awarded? Is it for his past because certainly he wasn’t the best last season!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The Award Should Be given base on how someone perform in the season and not who the person is.
    The champions League is Everything just the same like World Cup...
    I can’t fully respect someone who hasn’t proven himself in the biggest and Most difficult league in the world .
    Barclays Premier League is the Biggest and Most Difficult League in The World.
    This Ronaldo His The Best... He Performs and Where💯

    I actually prefer Ronaldo over Messi since he moved clubs throughout his career and succeeded. But between the two ... I would actually prefer Zlatan because of how tall he is to play with flair like that, be he's a player passed his Prime. Congratulations to Messi though. I expect Ronaldo's competitive ass to do something amazing this year. I love his competitive attitude.
