Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has picked “small” Lionel Messi slightly above Cristiano Ronaldo but described Ronaldo as a perfect player who has all the requirements of a footballer.

The argument of who is a better footballer between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi has been a raging one for ages. They have both dominated the world of football for years winning almost everything available in the game except FIFA World Cup and FIFA Confederation Cup.

Liverpool coach joined the debate on who is better when he was interviewed by YouTube channel freekickerz. When asked who he prefers most between Ronaldo and Messi, Jurgen Klopp said: “For me Messi, but I couldn’t admire Ronaldo more than I do already.

“The explanation is the following. We’ve played against both already and both are almost impossible to defend.

“But Messi has much lower physical requirements from birth on. If you could paint yourself a perfect player, it would have Ronaldo’s height, he could jump and run as high or quick as Ronaldo can do. And what is then even added to that is his total attitude, it is absolutely perfect and professional, it couldn’t be any better.

“And on the other side there is the small Messi who makes everything look so simple. And therefore I like him maybe a little bit more as a player on the pitch. But Cristiano is also an absolutely incredible player.

“It’s really difficult therefore, but what both have in common is that both have left their footprints for such a long time.

“There are also some younger players who have a similar potential, but to do that over this time period is even more incredible.”

Those Who Hate Cristiano Ronaldo Hate Football

The video was Published by @FlFAWC2018 and titled: ‘You can hate Cristiano Ronaldo all you want, but if you don’t appreciate Cristiano Ronaldo you simply don’t appreciate football. You’re just a sad hater.’

In the two-minute video, the former Real Madrid star could be seen dazzling football fans with amazing skills, free-kicks, pacing run, and extraordinary goals, all to justify the fact that the Portuguese football legend is a complete footballer.
