Louis van Gaal on the Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo debate

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are widely hailed as two of the greatest footballers of all time. However, choosing between them is one of the fiercest debates in football.

Former Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal also shared his opinion on this (via Onda Sero):

“And the big question, Messi or Cristiano? The best players of this era are Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. It’s hard to choose between them. Ronaldo has more results than Messi in terms of titles. Messi has more individual awards, but Ronaldo is more of a team. player.”

He added:

“So you have to choose, I’m more of a team coach than an individual player. Messi may be the best footballer, but you have to play as a team.”

This could be considered a paradoxical statement as many believe that the Argentine ace is more of a team player than his eternal rival. Regardless, both are definitely two of the greatest soccer players of all time.

Lionel Messi will next play for Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1 on April 8 against OGC Nice. Ronaldo, meanwhile, will face Al Fayha with Al-Nasser on April 9.
