“When it comes to more success, I would give that to Ronaldo 100 times” – Leon Bailey
Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are considered my many to be among the greatest footballers of all time.
They both boast storied careers due to their exceptional feats on the football field over the years and as they edge closer to retirement, comparisons between the two players have only become more frequent.
Messi and Ronaldo are 34 and 36 years of age respectively, yet they continue to play starring roles at their clubs – Barcelona and Juventus.
The debate over which player is better will likely continue for many years and Reggae Boy Leon Bailey recently weighed in to share his opinion on both players.
While speaking to ESPN’s Alexis Nunes, Bailey said:
“I think [Lionel] Messi has been at one club for too long.
“The big difference between Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi is Ronaldo has done great things in different teams and that is what makes him great.
“Obviously they are two great players but Ronaldo will always have that upper hand.”
Bailey also offered flattering words for Messi but still maintained his stance by adding:
“I believe Messi is more talented than Ronaldo, but when it comes to more success, I would give that to Ronaldo 100 times.”
“Cristiano Ronaldo has done great things in different teams, and that’s what makes him great.”@leonbailey on the Messi vs. Ronaldo debate 🐐
