Messi and Ronaldo have proven to be the 2 Kings of football countless times, and fans have not been able to decide which of these men is the best in the world.
For many years, they have dominated football, winning so many trophies and awards, setting examples, and breaking records. But the careers of these two football stars are gradually coming to an end, their retirement is closer now than ever before.
Here are 3 things that may happen after Messi and Ronaldo's retirement.
1. Young Star Will Take Over
As we speak, there are so many young footballers already breaking world records, and I believe they will take over and be the next big stars.
Mbappe for example already holds the record as the fastest player, and one of the youngest to score in a World cup.
Erling Haaland, Sancho, Greenwood, and Saka are still very young, they may assume the position of the World's best in a few years when Messi and Ronaldo finally retires.
2. Fresh Rivalry Among Footballer Stars
In every football generation, there is always professional Rivalry among prominent players. For the past 10 years, Messi and Ronaldo have been on the tongue of many, and till now, the rivalry has not been settled.
After Messi and Ronaldo's era, new competition among talented players will definitely emerge, and fans will take sides as always.
3. New Records
No doubt that Ronaldo and Messi will leave behind football legacies that players may struggle to match. But I believe that after a few years, new football stars will set new records of their own.
Just like the days of Pele and Maradona, fans believed that no other will be like them, but Ronaldo and Messi have proven otherwise.
In the same manner, new stars will come up, and attain heights, that some feel is impossible right now.
