Who is better Zidane or Messi?


Been on the Rateyourplayer twitter and they posted a tweet asking who was better so thought I'd ask the question. In my eyes it's got to be Zidane. He won everything with different teams and more importantly with his country.

Linked Player: Lionel Messi

Ronaldo is the better player overall but Mess is the best in a team in my opinion

Well well well, here is the question if Ronaldo wins the Euros does that make him the best in the world?

Definitely Zidane, he had it all in nearly every game he played.

Messi could break all the records he wants... If I don't see it for Argentina, he's not the best in my eyes!

I do love Zidane, but Messi is something else, seriously, out of this world

Zidane was average in his last few years at Real Madrid , Messi does things that are not normal on a football pitch , Messi is number 1 :)

@NUFCLiam Very true... I'm well too young to of seen a lot of Pele but I have seen a few clips on youtube.. I don't like him as much as I should because of the things he says, he comes across way too arrogant

I would go Zidane purely based on the fact you can look at his entire career while Messi is in the middle of his. I always find these discussions interesting because it's really just opinion since they played in different eras. The fairest comparison of players would be Messi & C Ronaldo a discussion that's been done to death elsewhere.

At this moment it has to be Zidane! ONLY because he played more games and had more time to show what he's got. In a few years time if Messi improves and carry's on playing the way he is doing now, then in my eyes Messi will be the better player. (he Also needs to improve playing for his country).

@RowanCharlieGee Well said, when Messi gets older you couldn't imagine him saying the things about younger players like Pele has..

Dont forget that Zidane wasnt good enough for Blackburn in the early 90's.

@ossie Wouldn't be surprised if Messi bettered that record even!... What I love about Messi is his attitude, he's not cocky or arrogant like previous "best players in the world", he's humble and has his feet firmly on the ground which was shown in the documentary about him last night

"When Messi's scored 1,283 goals(in 1363 games!!!!!) like me, when he's won three World Cups, we'll talk about it," Pele.

No one comes close to this record.
