Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the two best footballers in the current era and also two greatest of all time. But still, the debate continues that who is the best between them. Both Messi and Ronaldo have billions of fans around the World and to the supporter of Messi, the Argentine little magician is the best. But to the fans of Portuguese star, Cristiano is the best. But now, Indian cricket team captain has created a controversy. To the Indian great cricketer Virat, Cristiano is more successful than Messi! As the player, Kohli is somewhat like Cristiano. And he is very fond of the Portuguese star.
Though the Messi fans will not agree with Kohli at all. To the fans, there is no logic of love. But Kohli has reminded the reality. To the Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli, Cristiano Ronaldo has taken much challenge than Lionel Messi and also got more success as well.
Both Cristiano and Messi have won five Ballon d’Or each and considering the individual awards, both are almost same. But considering the national team achievements, Cristiano has overtaken Messi. Lionel Messi won four Champions League where Ronaldo won five Champions League titles. However, Ronaldo also won the UEFA Euro with his national team in 2016 and just a few weeks ago, he won the UEFA Nations League for the Portugal national team.

On the other side, wearing the national team jersey, the achievement of Messi is almost empty. If we consider the league title win, Messi is far ahead than the Portuguese star no doubt. But, CR7 has played the three top European leagues named English Premier League, Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A. Also won the league title with each of them. It is also a great achievement.
To the FIFA.Com, Indian skipper Kohli has given an interview where he stated that he thinks that Ronaldo has taken more challenge and in every case, he is successful. So, he is a complete player. Cristiano used to work very hard and Kohli is also aware of that. There is no comparison of it. He is the inspiration to the other players. And not more players can do it like CR7, Kohli believes.
“He’s the most complete player I have seen.”

Virat Kohli believes that in the near future, Kylian Mbappe would be great like Cristiano Ronaldo. He stated that Mbappe is an intelligent player. During the match against Argentina in the Russia World Cup, he showed some amazing skill that compares to none. In a positive way, Mbappe is a monster and one day perhaps, he would be one of the greatest players
