Opinion

I like Barcelona, so my preference is for Messi, although I think Mohamed Salah has the best season of all players. Nevertheless I think we should stop comparing these players. Comparing players is happening for ages and I just don’t like it. I feel so blessed I live in an era where I can see both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo play. There is no such thing as the best footballer in the world. Everybody can have his own opinion and should support the player he likes the most. But let’s just all enjoy the last few years we can see Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo before the retire.
