Alex Ferguson, former Manchester United manager, has named the difference between Cristiano Ronaldo and his longtime rival Lionel Messi, thus contributing to the greatest-of all-time debate. The legendary coach was asked what makes the Portuguese superstar a delightful watch than his Barcelona rival and unsurprisingly Fergie, who is considered Ronaldo’s football father, quickly named the Juve star’s unique qualities that rank him above the Argentine.
“There is a difference between Messi and Ronaldo and I’ll tell you what it is,” Ferguson said. “I think Messi is a Barcelona player but Ronaldo could be playing for Stockport County and he would score a hat-trick. He is brilliant in the air and he has two feet.”
