As the temperature soars up ahead of El Clasico, Brazil great Pele who has made a powerful impact in the football world with his record of 1281 goals declares his favorite among Barcelona Lionel Messi and Real Madrid Cristiano Ronaldo. He chooses Messi over Ronaldo stating Messi as a superior team player.
‘To compare Messi and Ronaldo? It’s a hard question, they are different kind of footballers. Messi is more for the team, preparing the game and assisting but Ronaldo is maybe more like the Brazilian Ronaldo and scores more. But in my team I would decide Messi, but both are fantastic. Messi now is playing completely different to Ronaldo. Ronaldo plays only in front’ as had been stated by Pele to reporters in London West End. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
