The two stars have won a total of eleven Ballon Dior awards; Lionel Messi has won six whereas Cristiano Ronaldo has won five. The debate on who is the greatest footballer of modern generation between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi has been on for several years. Several football players, managers, pundits and fans have contributed to this debate.
Real Madrid star Eden Hazard who is considered by many as one of the greatest dribblers in the world has also contributed on the debate. According to Eden Hazard, Lionel Messi is with no doubt the greatest player in the world. He even considers Lionel Messi as the greatest player of all time.
Speaking to Sportskeeda, Eden Hazard said:
"Two G.O.A.T.s (Greatest of All Time) you say? No way. There is only one G.O.A.T: Him, Lionel Messi!
Those two games against FC Barcelona in 2018 were not my best memories of 2018. I was happy to play again Barcelona and Messi, but I didn't deliver what I expected. I was disillusioned. My three sons were there for the home match at Stamford Bridge. The eldest is a big Messi fan - all of us are Messi fans, actually. He wanted to see Messi that day because Messi is a special player."
