The Greatest Debate, Who's Better? Messi vs Ronaldo

Who is better Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo? It's a debate which, given the fact they're two of the most remarkably gifted footballers the world has ever seen, will most likely never have a true answer.

Personally, I'm in the Messi camp, however, that's just an opinion and, at the end of the day, that's all this argument boils down to. It's a matter of choice, a matter of personal preference and, no matter which side of the fence you're on, you have to admit both are unimaginably good.

But what does Football Manager 2016 think? Putting personal awards and winners medals aside, when it comes down to the nitty-gritty of the post-Winter Update FM Attribute ratings, who comes out on top?

Messi wins in 17 categories while Ronaldo wins in 16.
That's right, neither of them. Just like the rest of us, FM 2016 struggles to split the two apart. Messi dominates when it comes to the extremely technical areas - Dribbling, Technique, Flair, Vision etc. - however, Ronaldo has him beat when it comes to raw physicality - Jumping Reach, Natural Fitness, Pace, Stamina, Strength, Heading etc.

Of course Messi has a couple of years on the Portuguese so, if he can carry on playing at his current level, odds are he will be remembered as the greatest player of his generation; if not of all time. Nevertheless, the effort Ronaldo has put into keeping his body at peak physical condition means he could be playing for a long while yet, who's to say he can't go up one more gear?

The debate rages on...

Thanks for reading and, until next time, enjoy playing FM 2016.
