The debate is on and one, but there's clearly a winner already. Due to Xavi Hernandez's words last week and the reaction from Cristiano Ronaldo, the question is being asked worldwide again. And the answer is clear. Edson Arantes do Nascimiento 'Pelé' share his thougths on the matter.
Pelé chooses Messi
"Cristiano Ronaldo is a great goalscorer. We could say some names in the last 10-15 years... but I think Messi has been the most consistent in that time. No doubts".
"For me Messi has been the most regular in the last 10 years. We could talk about Ronaldo... He reminds me a lot of Ronaldo Nazario. In the end Ronaldo scores goals, but Messi also assists and creates a lot. Cristiano is a great goalscorer but Messi is more complete. He is the best".
