Ronaldo is perfect but I choose Messi, says Klopp
LIVERPOOL: Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp recently had his opinion on the old debate about which footballer is better among the Argentine teacher Lionel Messi and Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo .
Over the years, the two have broken multiple scoring records and have set new ones and set incredible standards for others to follow.
Klopp, who has faced these two many times with Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool, stated he finds Messi a notch higher than Ronaldo.
For me Messi, but I couldn't admire Ronaldo more than I already do. The explanation is the following. We have already played both and both are almost impossible to defend. But Messi has much lower physical requirements since birth, Klopp told freekickerz in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel.
If you could paint yourself as a perfect player, he would be Ronaldo's height, he could jump and run as high or fast as Ronaldo can.
And what adds to that is his total attitude, he is absolutely perfect and professional, it couldn't be better, added the winning coach of the 2019-20 Champions League.
And on the other hand there is the little Messi who makes everything seem so simple. And therefore I like it a bit more as a player on the field, he added.
Messi currently holds the record for the most Ballon d'Or titles with six to his name, while Ronaldo has won the crown five times. The two engaged in a once-in-a-lifetime rivalry in The league before Ronaldo left Real Madrid for Serie A giants Juventus .
