Is CR7 Real Madrid’s greatest?

As has always been the case in the Ronaldo vs Messi debate, when Ronaldo does something good he’s the greatest ever, and when Messi does something good he’s the greatest. So since Cristiano’s brace in the Champions League Final the football world have been hailing him as this generation and Real Madrid’s GOAT, and no one ever has or will compare with him.

Of course Madrid have been winning titles and European cups for decades, so for anyone with a memory spanning longer than the last ten years big game players are nothing new. In fact, for the older Real Madrid fans thee European cups in four years isn’t that impressive. So where does Ronaldo rank in Madrid’s greatest ever players?

That really is some list of players, and shows just how far behind English players have been in comparison to these greats. Gavin Harris was closer to making the list than Owen Hargreaves and Michael Owen, and Becks would have been lucky to make the top 50.

Ronaldo will go down in history as second best to Messi, and unfortunately here he’s playing the same role with Zidane. Forever the bridesmaid.
