Manchester City legend, Sergio Aguero, has insisted that Argentina captain Lionel Messi is a better footballer than Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo.
Aguero said there was no doubt that Messi was the greatest player of his generation than Ronaldo even before the Paris Saint-Germain forward won the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar last Sunday.
Messi recently won the Golden Ball award of the 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign after leading Argentina to win the World Cup trophy ahead of France.
Asked whether he considered Messi better than Ronaldo, Aguero told Stake, “I don’t think there’s any doubt [that he’s the greatest of his generation].
“For me, there were no doubts before the World Cup and much less now. Cristiano has had an extraordinary career and is a complete athlete. But Leo clearly has been and is the best.”
Messi and Ronaldo have bagged a combined 12 Ballon d’Or among themselves in the last 15 years.
