Lionel Messi vs Ronaldo: Former Arsenal star names 2 ‘purely’ talented players better than GOAT duo

Former French footballer Samir Nasri has sparked a debate with his evaluation of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s abilities.

The ongoing discussion about the greatest footballer of all time continues to generate strong opinions, often influenced by personal biases and club allegiances.

For the past twenty years, Messi and Ronaldo have consistently been at the forefront of this debate, showcasing their skills at Barcelona and Real Madrid, respectively, as highlighted by GOAL.

During their prime years, they dominated not just La Liga and Europe but also the global football scene, captivating fans with their goal-scoring prowess.

While Messi now plays for Inter Miami in Major League Soccer, Ronaldo’s influence extends to attracting top talents to the Saudi Pro League.

Their impact on the sport is undeniable, but opinions vary when comparing them to other football legends.

Nasri, who represented Arsenal and Manchester City in the Premier League, believes that despite Messi and Ronaldo’s impressive achievements, they don’t match the sheer talent of Brazilian greats Ronaldinho and Ronaldo Nazario.

According to Nasri, the innate skill possessed by Ronaldinho Gaucho and Ronaldo Nazario sets them apart from Messi and Ronaldo, in his opinion.

“Ronaldo and Ronaldinho extinguish Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in terms of pure talent,” he conveyed to AmineMaTueTV in French, translated into English, per EuroFoot.
