Messi and Ronaldo: Who Is The Greatest? (World Soccer Legends) (Hardcover)
A head-to-head comparison of the two greatest soccer stars of their generation—and perhaps of all time
One, diminutive and reserved; the other, tall and theatrical. One with six Ballons d’Or, and the other with five. There’s no doubt about it—Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are the best. But which one is better?
This lively book compares every aspect of the legendary rivals’ careers, to let the reader decide. It compares their stats, including their ten years of matchups in El Clásico, their club trophies, and their individual awards and milestones. It analyzes their style of play, and how it has evolved throughout their careers. And, it looks at how their rivalry continues off the field, in terms of endorsement deals, social media followings, and philanthropic endeavors. Packed with color photos of the champions in action, Messi and Ronaldo will spark discussion among both players’ partisans.
