Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the highest paid soccer players in the world game.So, between the Portuguese and the Argentinean, who is the best player? According to Ronaldo, "it is like comparing a "Ferrari with a Porsche."
While Messi has an upperhand on dribbling and control, no one can finish a goal with head like Ronaldo does. If Ronaldo's free-kicks are a thing to behold, Messi's footwork is an art in itself.
In the 2011-12 season, including both club and country games, Messi had the total of 74 goals whereas Ronaldo has the total of 71 goals. Although each has won the title of World Player of the Year, it is Messi whose technique and skill is more appreciated.
Messi is also more of a team player than Ronaldo whose individualistic approach has come under the radar more often than not.
