Dybala Wades Into Messi-Ronaldo Debate

By Joshua Walters

Paulo Dybala has waded into the Lionel Messi-Cristiano Ronaldo debate and said the two players are at par and above every other player on the planet currently.

World football has for the past ten years been separated by two opposing forces; those who believe that Messi is the best player alive so far and those who think the accolade belongs to Ronaldo

The Argentina and Juventus attacking player is a teammate of Lionel Messi at the national level and appears to be also enjoying a good partnership with Ronaldo who joined the Turin club last summer.

Dybala waded into the controversy in an interview with Spanish newspaper AS but sought parity among the two superpowers as he refused to give a straight forward answer to the question of which of the two he thought was the best.

"I am lucky enough to have Cristiano at my club and Leo in my national team. But it's impossible to make a comparison between the two of them or say who is the best because they are at a level on a par with each other and well above everybody else, and that has been the case for several years," Dybala said.

Dybala heaped praises on the skills of the two players and their match winning qualities though adding that Ronaldo is easy to play with.

"They are different, they have enormous influence because they can decide games on their own and because the effect they have on the opposition," Dybala added.

"Cristiano is an example to follow in training and in his daily life. You can learn a lot from him," Dybala concluded.
