These two players can be seen as the faces of new age football. Redefining moments, breaking records, creating wonderful displays but to say the least.
Determining who is the greatest has become an argument in football.
The return of Cristiano Ronaldo to the premier league and his display sparked another argument in Monday night football where Neville said Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest.
"If you were to pick any player in history to come off the bench at their peak to win a game and you only had one substitution left, who would it be?
" It would be Cristiano Ronaldo" said Neville
In contrast to what Neville said. Jamie Carragher disagreed that Cristiano is a better player.
"You talk about who you would want coming of the bench. Messi has scored double the amount of goals coming off the bench.
" Two wonderful players in terms of all the attributes, Ronaldo is a more complete player. He can do things that Messi can't in terms of his weaker foot and in the air.
"But Messi can take you to a place where you can't actually believe what you are seeing. What Ronaldo does is what other players can do, Messi can do things you have never seen before"
