Over the years, Ronaldo fans have refused all form of persuasion of Messi being the greatest footballer in history. For them Messi has not proved himself in a different league like Ronaldo. Ronaldo has played in four of Europe's top five leagues with excellent statistics. Messi on other hand has been in Barcelona for 17 seasons. He only left Barcelona this season to Paris Saint-Germain following the expiration of his contract and inability of the Barcelona board to offer him a new one.
Ronaldo fans claim Messi cannot be compaired to the Portuguese if he does not leave Barcelona which they call his comfort zone. Ronaldo fans have failed to recognise the part Messi has been playing in Barcelona this past years. They usually refer to him as ''Eibar man'' forgetting that Barcelona without him is not different from Eibar. Since the departure of Neymar from Barcelona and Luis Suarez's drop in form, Messi alone has been carrying Barcelona till his departure from the Catalan club. Recent poor performances from Barcelona could be attributed to his departure.
Without Lionel Messi, Barcelona have proved that they are truly toothless bull dogs.
So the question is, was the Catalan club Messi's comfort zone?
