"He Never conquered Spain, Messi remains the King in Spain'', Fans disagree over Ronaldo & Messi

The debate about who is the better player between Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentine Lionel Messi will never die now despite Ronaldo leaving the Spanish league for Italy two seasons back.

Both players have continued to break records upon records despite their ages they both seems do want to slow down.

In the just concluded La Liga season, Lionel Messi became the first player in the Spanish top flight to hit double figures in goals and assists in a season (25 goals with 22 assists) as Ronaldo became the first Juventus player to hit 25 goals in 30 years and also became the only player to his 50 goals in Italy, England and Spain.

Some fans took to their social media platforms to hail the Portuguese star but some have come to say he is not the greatest.

Ugwunna Ejikem tweeted that

Cristiano Ronaldo outscored everyone in England & moved to Spain.

Within two years he outscored everyone in Spain, won his first Pichichi then moved to Italy.

Within two years he is outscoring everyone in Italy enroute being the Capocannoniere.

He conquers everywhere he goes.

But there was to be a quick reaction from Promise Daryllll as he showed his support for Lionel Messi who he belives is greater than Ronaldo.


Ronaldo spent 9 seasons in Spain from 2009. In that time span, Ronaldo scored 311 goals in 292 apps while Messi scored 329 goals in 309 apps.

Messi had 5 Pichichi trophies to Ronaldo's 3

Messi had 5 LaLiga Best Player Award to Ronaldo's 1.

Well, if you are asked as to who is the greatest between Ronaldo and Messi who will you take as your Greatest Of All Time (Time)?
