Between Argentine Lionel Messi and Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, Brazil legend Kaka has chosen his G.O.A.T in football.
Labeling the Argentine wizard a ‘genius’, Kaka opted for Messi when asked to pick between the Barcelona captain and Ronaldo. According to Goal.com, Kaka was doing a Q&A session on FIFA’s Instagram channel.
Kaka’s choice comes albeit playing with the Portuguese striker for Real Madrid between 2009-2013.”I played with Cristiano and he’s really amazing, but I’ll go with Messi. He’s a genius, a pure talent. The way he plays is incredible,” Kaka said on Instagram,
Between Messi and Ronaldo, the pair have won 11 Ballon d’Or awards, six with the Argentine and five with the Portuguese. “Cristiano is a machine. It’s not just the way he’s strong, powerful and fast; he’s strong mentally. He always wants to win and play. To be the best. For me, that’s the most incredible thing he has,” Kaka added.
“In the history of the sport, they (Messi and Ronaldo) are definitely in the top five. We are very lucky to have been able to see both of them.” Kaka played alongside Ronaldo at the Bernabeu between 2009-13, but the 2007 Ballon d’Or winner selected Messi as his preferred choice.
Ricardo Izecson Dos Santos Leite, better known as Kaka, is one of the best football players today. In International Football, Kaká was a key contributor to Brazil’s runs to the quarterfinals at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups, but he failed to make the national side when his home country hosted the 2014 Cup.
