Messi / Ronaldo : fears


Here’s a prayer.

God, God, please ensure Messi stays intact. Please ensure there is no major injury to him.

The reason we want to compare Messi to di Stefano, to Pele and to Diego, is because this happened.

Ronaldo is still an all-time great. The highest goalscorer in the world cups. Sensational, and one of the two greatest talents in the post-Diego world (Messi being the other… not Zidane, while Zidane is a higher achiever than Ronaldo, and will rate higher than Ronaldo in the overall scales).

However, there could have been no comparison, the guy was so good. He could have been better than Pele and Maradona. But for that injury.

May Messi have a relatively injury-free playing life. Please? He is a gift to the football-loving public, a rare, precious thing.
