You kidding? Messi is the Genius while Ronaldo was the Hard Worker. Messi was selected by Maradona as his successor when he was 18, while Ronaldo lacked the skills apparent in Messi when he was the same age. As Pique said, "Cristiano is a perfect machine, a natural-born hard worker who always wants to improve. He demands a lot from himself, something he showed at United. What surprised me the most is that Messi won four consecutive Ballon dâ€™Ors and he still maintained his level, to continuously try to beat him.", while also saying, "Leo [Messi] is different, heâ€™s naturally talented. Maybe he isnâ€™t as obsessive or hard-working as Cristiano, but when he has the ball itâ€™s impossible to stop him. You think you can steal the ball from him, but Leo is a genius. He has been since childhood, the best player in the world." Which would make the Genius the winner, then. But I think they are both winners in this occasion. But if you see his body, it looks like he is made for sports. Take sports like basket ball. His jumps are as much as an average basketball player. In soccer his speed, skill, height makes him a genius at this sport.
