No matter what level of football you watch or whatever team you support, everyone can agree that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are two of the best players of all the time. Over the last decade we've seen the pair of them take their games to absolutely incredible heights which has seen them cement their place in history. These two are really once in a generation players but incredibly we've been treated to both of them at the same time, so saying we've been spoilt is an understatement.
From the outside looking in it's amazing to watch these two push each other to crazy new levels and the competitiveness between them must be sky high, no matter how much they try to play it down. Messi is regarded as the best ever by a lot of people and its clearly had an impact on his rival, who's been described as 'obsessed' with the Argentine by a former teammate.
Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs spent 6 years with Cristiano at Old Trafford and claimed that the 34 year-old was absolutely determined to prove that he's better than the Barcelona forward, which may have played a big part in his summer Juventus transfer. Despite approaching his mid-thirties, the five time Balon d'Or winner commanded a mega €100m transfer fee to move to Serie A and so far it's been a massive success with him hitting the back of the net 21 times in Italy.
