Klopp: Ronaldo Is The ‘Perfect Player’ But Messi Is The ‘Best’
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has given his golden verdict on the age-long debate of Ronaldo Vs Messi.
The German has tested the brutality of the duo on different occasions in his managerial career, Ronaldo (with Dortmund) and Messi most recently with Liverpool.
Although Liverpool has one of the most feared attacking unit in world footballer, but the manager couldn’t resist himself from getting into the Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo debate.
In Klopp’s opinion the Portuguese is the ‘perfect player’s any manager could dream of having in his team, because of his all-round physical attributes which includes his strength, height, pace and so on.
However, Messi remains the best player for the German coach. Klopp chose Messi as the best because of his artistic style of football. Despite his physical deficiencies, the Argentine makes everything look so simple on the pitch.
“For me Messi, but I couldn’t admire Ronaldo more than I do already,” Klopp told YouTube channel freekickerz.
“The explanation is the following. We’ve played against both already and both are almost impossible to defend.”
“But Messi has much lower physical requirements from birth on. If you could paint yourself a perfect player, it would have Ronaldo’s height, he could jump and run as high or quick as Ronaldo can do. And what is then even added to that is his total attitude, it is absolutely perfect and professional, it couldn’t be any better.”
“And on the other side there is the small Messi who makes everything look so simple. And therefore I like him maybe a little bit more as a player on the pitch. But Cristiano is also an absolutely incredible player.”
“It’s really difficult, therefore, but what both have in common is that both have left their footprints for such a long time.
“There are also some younger players who have a similar potential, but to do that over this time period is even more incredible.”
