Opinion: 3 Attributes Of Messi That Make Him More Unique Than Ronaldo

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have been battling it out for the title of "Greatest Of All Time" (GOAT) in the history of football for some time now, and the debate has taken over the minds of football fans. The majority of football fans believe Lionel Messi is the greatest player of all time, while some believe Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest of all time. They keep football interesting while also making their fans happy, which is the beauty of the two (2) player's games.

Although football has produced many legends, such as Pele, Ronaldinho, Diego Maradona, Michel Platini, Josef Bican, Raul Gonzalez and others, the difference between what Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have achieved in football shows that the two (2) players are far better than any of the past legends, and it is likely that there will be no one else like them if the two (2) players retire from playing football after their respective careers are completed.

In a real sense, this article focuses on three (3) characteristics that distinguish Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi from Manchester United attacker Cristiano Ronaldo in comparison to the latter.

First and foremost, Lionel Messi believes in focusing on his game (performance) rather than focusing solely on goal scoring opportunities. He is a dribbler who makes it difficult for other players to tackle him, and he also provides assists, in contrast to Cristiano Ronaldo, who is always looking to score goals regardless of his contributions to the team's performance. While there is no doubt that Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo is a goal scorer, Lionel Messi, on the other hand, is an all-around player who is well aware that he creates opportunities for other players as well as scoring goals for his team.

Lionel Messi is also more concerned with performance (making more effort to help his club or national team win a game) than he is with scoring goals, which is why he has won more awards than his arch-rival Cristiano Ronaldo in the past two seasons. In comparison to Cristiano Ronaldo, who is solely concerned with scoring goals, Lionel Messi is a team player.

Finally, Cristiano Ronaldo is constantly thinking about breaking or setting records rather than simply playing his normal game. Lionel Messi, on the other hand, believes that the only way to break or set records is to play the normal game. Cristiano Ronaldo is on a record-breaking spree, but records are always on the lookout for Lionel Messi.
