Before his move to Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, Danish legend Michael Laudrup was one of the best footballers in the world. He is therefore an authorized voice to speak about what is happening in the world of football.
Asked about the eternal debate between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the brilliant Michael Laudrup opted for the Pulga, now a star of PSG. The one nicknamed Miki, Michelino, or even il violino appreciates and describes CR7 as a “complete player.” But he believes that Messi, for his vision of the game, is superior to the top scorer in football history and current Al Nassr star.
“Messi or Cristiano?” These are the two best. not just now but over the past seven or eight years. This duel delighted everyone because we always wonder who is the best and who is not. For me, these are the two best of recent years. They are different. One is a complete player, which is Ronaldo, who has everything. The other is football. For me, it’s pure talent, like Maradona in my time. They are the two best, but they are different. The way I play, I would say Messi is better. “Because, apart from individual things, he has this vision of the game that perhaps Ronaldo does not have,” he said in an interview with Tiempo de Juego on COPE.
