New thread surfaces online that is convincing fans Messi is a better goalscorer than Ronaldo

Posted by

A thread has appeared on Twitter which is attempting to explain why Lionel Messi is a better goalscorer than Cristiano Ronaldo despite the Portuguese star scoring more goals in his career.

The thread goes into some great detail breaking the two players down into very specific categories such as ‘most goals outside the box’ and ‘most goals against the Premier League’s Top 6.’

There’s a lot in it so take your time but it’s clear to see a lot of research has gone into the thread and it’s an obvious attempt to convince you Messi is the greatest but the fact that the profile photo of the account is Lionel Messi leads us to believe that it is of course bias towards the Barcelona legend.

Either way, there is no denying that Messi and Ronaldo are the G.O.A.T.S and we’ve all been lucky enough to go along for the ride so take a look at the numbers and see what you think – Messi or Ronaldo?
