| 1 Comment

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!

Ronaldo or Messi?

Cristiano Ronaldo or Leo Messi?

Rio Ferdinand, Steven Gerrard, David Luiz, Joe Hart and more reveal who they think is the best.

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.

How They Voted
Robin Van Persie Messi
Michael Owen Ronaldo
Rio Ferdinand Ronaldo
Joe Hart Messi
Steven Gerrard Messi
Jake Humphrey Messi
Owen Hargreaves Ronaldo
James Richardson Messi
David Luiz Messi

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.

What do you think? Have your say…

So who's the best?
