France Football loves a good debate and they decided to pint Cristiano Ronaldo against Ronaldinho today. As you might already know, the prestigious French publication is currently doing the Ballon d’Or Dream Team nominations for each position on the pitch.
We’ve seen them put out several lists of the very best players in football history and made the people vote for them. To start the week in style, they decided to put out the lists for all attacking positions. We have center-forwards, right-wingers, and left-wingers. Out of all those lists, the one for the left-wingers has one of the most interesting duels.
There are many amazing players from their own era to complete a list dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo and Ronaldinho. The rest of the list has players like Thierry Henry, Ryan Giggs, Rivelino, Hristo Stoichkov, Rivaldo, among other great players. But if we are being real about this, the actual contest will go down between Cristiano and ‘Dinho’.
Ronaldinho’s brilliance vs Cristiano’s long career.
The vast majority of supporters are convinced that Cristiano Ronaldo has no contest inside this list of nominees. He already won five Ballon d’Or trophies to prove he is the absolute best. However, Ronaldinho’s impact on football during his prime is hard to forget by anybody who witnessed his greatness.
Although Cristiano has won almost everything with his club and country. The Brazilian star did actually win every collective trophy a footballer can win throughout his career. Plus, his talent is completely unrivaled. Choosing between both of these legends will be extremely difficult but still a fun exercise from France Football.
It will all come down to what the fans have to say about the matter. We believe the ultimate winner will be Cristiano Ronaldo, but Ronaldinho will be a close second. You can vote for your favorite left-winger of all-time right here.
