The debate of who is better between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi has dominated the minds of football experts and fans everywhere for the past decade and will continue into the future.
In a 2016 interview, enigmatic striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic took his pick between Messi and Ronaldo, claiming that the Argentine was in his own league.
Sharing his opinion on the Messi-Ronaldo debate, the veteran striker picked Lionel Messi without hesitation, describing his ex-Barcelona teammate in glowing words .
“I think Messi is one of a kind. What he’s doing, I don’t know if we will see another player do the things that he does,” the AC Milan superstar said in 2016 as quoted by Sportskeeda.
“It is different [with Ronaldo] because he is the result of hard training. It is not natural.”
While Ibrahimovic is certain about his choice between Messi and Ronaldo football fans remain divided on the never-ending debate.
Meanwhile, Messi and CR7 will cross paths in what appears to be a final showdown between the duo when Messi's Paris Saint-Germain face an All-Star Al-Nassr and Al-Hilal side led by Ronaldo on Thursday evening, per Mirror.
