“It was never a debate”, Carragher causes anger with his stance on the Messi-Ronaldo debate


Liverpool icon Jamie Carragher caused a stir with his opinion on who is the best footballer of all time between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Carraghet has surprised everyone by emphasizing that there has never been a debate about who is the best footballer between Messi and Ronaldo.

“It was never an argument. Ronaldo is nowhere near Messi’s level,” Carragher initially told CBS Sport .

“Ronaldo is one of the best goalscorers of all time, Messi is the best player of all time, it’s not even close.”

“Ronaldo scored goals, Messi scored goals and was an incredible player,” concluded the Englishman.


Even if you’re a Messi fan, to say it’s never been a debate is quite a stretch considering what Ronaldo achieved in his career.

Messi himself has often acknowledged how Ronaldo’s performances pushed him to continue to achieve more greatness and success.

In recent years, Messi has certainly moved away from Ronaldo by winning three Golden Balls and of course the World Cup.

This is why he is easily considered the greatest of all time to this day.
