In December 2019, Barca faced Atletico Madrid and number 10 Braugrana offered the victory to his team after an XXL game. This performance was hailed by the world including Iker Casillas, Ronaldo's former teammate at Real Madrid. For legendary goalkeeper Meringue, the Pulga is quite simply the best footballer ever.


The debate of GOAT (best footballer in history) will always be up for debate. Even if Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the choices of the fans of the current generation, the older ones always evoke Pelé or Maradona. However, there are some Cristiano Ronaldo teammates who, against all odds, have nominated his eternal rival, Lionel Messi.

1. Ikar Casillas

"I think I've said that before, but they're probably the two best players to ever play the game," he said last year, by goal. I just think Messi is, in my eyes, the best ever."


Four other former Ronaldo teammates tick ... Messi

But this is not the first time that a former Ronaldo team-mate has sided with Messi. Wayne Rooney played with Ronaldo at Manchester United but has said Messi is the greatest player of all time on numerous occasions.


2. Real Madrid legend Raul also chose Messi over Ronaldo.

"I had the chance to play with Zidane, Ronaldo, Figo, Cristiano… but Messi is different," he told Sports Illustrated in 2015, from FourFourTwo. He makes everything so easy, so simple - even the impossible. When you watch him play, it's almost like watching him on the street playing with his buddies."


3. Ryan Giggs

Ronaldo's ex-teammate at Man Utd, has the same opinion as Rooney. “Obviously I'm leaning towards Ronaldo a bit because I played with him and watched him develop as a player,” he told The Sun. But Messi is a genius, he is a once in a lifetime player. It's that simple."


4. Paul Scholes

The Lusitanian’s former Man Utd team-mate also reiterated that he believes Messi is better than Ronaldo. When asked to choose between the two, Scholes told Mirror: “Messi. But Ronaldo is brilliant. Ronaldo is sensational at what he does, with pace and power. He scores, he takes free kicks. But as a versatile footballer, Messi - wow, he has absolutely everything."


5. Real Madrid legend Raul also chose Messi over Ronaldo.

"I had the chance to play with Zidane, Ronaldo, Figo, Cristiano… but Messi is different," he told Sports Illustrated in 2015, from FourFourTwo. He makes everything so easy, so simple - even the impossible. When you watch him play, it's almost like watching him on the street playing with his buddies."
