After Man Utd’s 2-1 victory over Everton, EPL Lampard compares Ronaldo to Messi.. Following his team’s 2-1 Premier League loss to Manchester United on Sunday, Everton manager Frank Lampard likened Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain to Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United.
At Goodison Park, Lampard witnessed Ronaldo score his 700th club goal against Everton.
Since September 15, Ronaldo had scored 699 goals in club football, but he now has 700 after scoring Man United’s second goal of the game against Everton.
At his news conference following the game, Lampard praised Ronaldo as one of the best players to ever play the game, noting that both he and Messi are outstanding players in the annals of football.
The comparison between Ronaldo and Messi, in his opinion, is meaningless because both players are amazing.
When compared to Lionel Messi and himself, Lampard called him one of the best players to ever play the game.
“It doesn’t matter how they compare; they are both among the greatest players in football history.
“The figures they’ve amassed, anomalous figures that have become into norms. I wanted him to score in the Europa League the other night against Omonia when he was on 699, but it wasn’t meant to be.
