    Imo, it is between him and Zidane. Ronaldinho, Ronaldo and Cristiano all come close as well.

    Of all time?

    One of them. Impossible to define a single greatest because of the different ways and eras people played in.

    You can't not include Maradona, Pele, Puskas, Cruyff, etc...

    I was a big fan of fat Ronaldo as he was an immense talent.

    But Zidane wins as he was just so good at making others look like they were not deserving to be on the same pitch.

    Why do people insist on talking about this nonsense?

    You can't compare eras. The sport if completely different to what it was likely 20 years, never mind 50 years or 100 years ago.

    Not to mention the fact that these stupid debates tend to be exclusively about attacking players.

    Of all time? Maybe.

    Of this era? Definitely. It’s blasphemy to even compare Ronaldo 7 to Messi. If you got time, watch this(press watch on youtube). All 600 goals Messi scored, it’s just magical.

    Messi is the best player in this century. He isn't the best of all time, because he doesn't win the World football championship. Ronaldo could not win this trophy, becaouse he is portoguese. The Argentina team should win, but Messi is often normal, when he plays with his nationalal team. In this situation, he is a very bad and ordinary copy of himself playing in club. We can see a double version of Messi: on one hand incredibile player in Barcellona, on the other hand normal player in Argentina team.

    So much garbage in one post. You clearly don't watch their games. The Messi of Argentina is basically how he is right now for Barcelona. Expected to be the creative influence and the finisher... :rolleyes:

    But fat Ronaldo and Zidane won everything for both club and country. So feels like they had something extra, and the luck of being part of a country with great players.

    Who is the best defender: Maldini or Matthäus?

    Who is the best keeper: Buffon or Neuer?

    A better question would be: who would you choose on your team if you could only have one?

    I have a soft spot for Ronaldinho. He made me fall in love with the game like no other.

    Ronaldo never won the CL. Suprised you missed that as it's a widely known fact.

    Zidane didn't win the Confederations Cup or UEFA Cup.

    Teams win trophies in football, not individuals, so it's a bad argument anyway.

    Yes Messi is the greatest player of all time.

    When you are the best player you make the difference. If you are the best it is very probabily that you play in good club that could win the thophy. There are a lot of very good player, but we are talking about the best. The only problem about the topic is that we can't speak about a general player but the best player as goodkeeper and so on. We should make difference in the role in the field.
    In my opionion is more considerable who win in middle-small Club (Leichster, Atletic Madrid, Napoli, Dortumund) as best player that who win in top Club.
