What do the Professionals Think? Messi or Ronaldo?
The ultimate question: Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo? Every man and his dog has an opinion on what is undoubtedly one of the greatest sporting rivalries of all time, and their fellow professionals are no different. They want their say too!
The guys over at BT Sport have posed this dilemma to footballers both past and present, including Steven Gerrard, Joe Hart and David Luiz, along with a couple of the BT Sport pundits. Watch the video below from BT Sport to hear their responses!
Some good points made on both sides, but it’s ultimately a fairly convincing win for Lionel Messi, who comes out on top with 6 votes to Ronaldo’s 3 votes.

This is obviously just a bit of fun and doesn’t count for much, but the Ballon d’Or – also voted for by fellow players, managers and pundits – is fast approaching. And that is an award both players would dearly like to get their hands on.
