Gianluigi Buffon, the veteran believes the Argentine magician is a better footballer that the 33-year-old Portuguese star man Cristiano Ronaldo, though he called Ronald “Killer” for his own right.
Both the player have won the same no of Ballon d’Or awards, and both of them regarded as the greatest players of this generation, both the players have won many individual trophies for their excellent performance for their club team, both of them are the all-time goal scorers for Barcelona and Madrid.
The Italian stopper entered into the debate ahead of their friendly match against Messi’s Argentina in Manchester.
The Italian voiced: "They are two completely different players,"
"Messi is more complete, because he starts deeper, has more technical quality and a vision of the game that is worthy more of a trequartista than a finisher.
"Cristiano Ronaldo, perhaps because he is a little older, has become a killer in the penalty area. Compared to how he was before, Ronaldo preserves his energy more, so he no longer goes out to the flank for a nutmeg or trick-shot, but with one ball into the box he can create a goal."
This season the Argentine is leading the goalscoring chart of their domestic league with 25 goals, on the other hand, Ronaldo has scored 12 goals in the Champions League this season.
