Already it does long that Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo conquered the peak of the football and turned into the dominadores indisputable of the panorama futbolístico. The debate on which of the two is better traces back even more than a decade backwards, when the Portuguese still was footballer of the Manchester United and not even played in the same championship that the Argentinian.

Peter Crouch, Harry Redknapp and Martin Keown have gathered in London in the 'Sportsmail's, To Pint with Piers' and the rivalry between the current footballer of the Juventus of Turín and the captain of the FC Barcelona was one of the subjects that treated. All they thought about his preferences and even commented any that another curious anecdote.

Crouch Did not arrive to coincide with Cristiano Ronaldo in the same team, but yes was international by England between 2005 and 2010, coinciding with some players of the Manchester United that explained him what the Portuguese answered them when, to hammer him, said him that Messi was better that he. "Yeah, but Messi does not see like this", answered them the Portuguese, boasting of his athletic body.

Redknapp, ex player and English trainer, ensured that, for him, Cristiano is better that Messi. "I am of Ronaldo on Messi. They love me the two, but am of Ronaldo. Estám He, Maradona, Peeled, George Best was a genius... I am a big admirer of George Best, but look to Ronaldo, what has done in the world-wide stage, has won all and is simply incredible", commented.

These words were retorted by Crouch, with a totally distinct opinion. The gigantic ex English forward ensured that, in his opinion, there is not debate and that Leo Messi is very above the luso. "I admire his mentality and his determination. But, if you are speaking of footballers talentosos, there is not comparison with Messi", answered.

For Keown, ex British defence, neither there are doubts about the superiority of Messi​. "I remain me with Messi", said, adding that "by the form in that it joins the game and by the ghosts of previous players, think that Messi will reinvent now, a bit as it did it Ryan Giggs at the end of his career. I do not think that Ronaldo can do this".

Pulla Of Redknapp to Messi

Redknapp Followed defending to Cristiano Ronaldo and, for this, desveló the supposed form act of Leo Messi in the trainings. "Ronaldo is an incredible professional. They say that it is the last in going out to train every day and thought that Messi would do the same, but knew to two trainers that worked in Barcelona with him said me that it was a nightmare for Guardiola. They said me that it arrived in the morning and that did not train a lot. That pateaba a pair of balloons and went . No it could it to me believe", confessed.
