The debate has been on for over a decade; owing to the fact that the duo has been amazingly consistent in leading their different teams to victories in the past ten years.
While speaking in an interview with Youtube channel freekickers, Klopp Picked Lionel Messi over Cristiano Ronaldo. However, he did not fail to state that he likes Ronaldo very much.
He said, “For me Messi, but I couldn’t admire Ronaldo more than I do already.
“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.
Klopp went on, “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.”
