3. Ronaldo is great but Messi is the best ever-Sampaoli
Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli has ignited the never-ending debate of who is the best between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. The Portuguese is set to lift his fifth Ballon d’Or award to go level with the Argentine. However, his national team Coach believes the Barcelona star is the best in the World.
“Cristiano is an extraordinary player, but I think and feel that in the last 10 years Messi was the best player in the world, but it is my opinion, by statistics, by amount of goals, assists, flair, style, but it is a particular thought of mine.
“I think in every time there is a footballer who is considered the best: Pele, Maradona, and Messi now.
The 30-year-old has been criticized for lack of International silverware but the former Chile boss does not think a footballer quality can be judged on the World Cup alone.
“But now he has remained 10 years in Europe, is the best player in the world, scoring more than 500 goals in this so complicated European football.
“So you don’t have to have a World Cup to be the best in the world.”

The former Liverpool striker also defended his former teammate for making the move last summer. He believes it was down to his family rather than the player himself.
“Ney is a mature person and was fully aware of the decision he made,” Suarez added.
“Obviously he did it with a lot of pain, because he was happy here. But we all have to accept that he had other challenges and that he wanted to take them on.
“It was an understandable decision that he took with his family. There is no reproach, just admiration and pure love for everything that he has given the club and the relationship we had throughout those years.”
