Top Ten Footballers of 2013

The Top Ten

1 Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, GOIH is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portugal national team.

Ronaldo is far far away better than messi
If there were no xavi, iniesta fabregas or other midfielders, messi will score rarely
And another reason that Ronaldo is a winger (Lst) and messi a forward (CST)
Ronaldo scores without xavi iniesta and other brilliant midfielders that messi have
He plays by his own and he himself plays at left wing and benzema at forward

There's a lot of debates between messi and ronaldo about who is the best football player at present... But I think ronaldo is the best. First of all messi gets a lot of support from his brilliant fellow midfielders.. But ronaldo is a complete player. He can assist and score without a sweat. He is strong and is very agile and fast. He is a goalmachine! So to me without a doubt ronaldo is the best fotball star at present.

Ronaldo can beat Messi anytime and anywhere. he is way faster than Messi and is the best dribbler in the world. Messi can never Ronaldo not even in his dreams!

I hate Ronaldo bad bad bad I HATE HIM! - Spino

2 Lionel Messi Lionel Messi Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

Hey! Hey! Something terribly went wrong. Who kept Ronaldo on the top? Messi is always the best. He is going to win his 5th Ballon d'Or this Year. He is a super human. Ronaldo on the top? You must be Joking! Messi had been suffering from hamstring injuryfor the past 1 month. But now, he is back. He is going to snatch his actual position. Wait and see.

Messi does what Ronaldo can't he is faster
More skillful and has a totally better attitude compared to Ronaldo who is always losing control and being an ass when his team is losing

No doubt, that cristiano ronaldo is a good player. But messi is the one who can make him cry. He is a calm and superb player in soccer. All the best for ronaldo!

MEssi should be number one why is he number two - Spino

3 Gareth Bale Gareth Bale Gareth Frank Bale is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a winger for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Wales national team.

Awesome tricks. If he showed off his fancy footwork to anyone on this list he would come second under ronldo

Why on earth is Gareth Bale not top! He is PFA Player of the year and is the top scoring prem midfielder this season! He is epic

Gareth Bale is so much better than Neymar. He has the speed, skills, shooting ability that Neymar can't even dream of!
He is the 2013 PFA Player Of The Year for a reason. Bale is the 2nd (or maybe 3rd) best in the world after Ronaldo.

He is one of Brazil's best players yet he should be
Be either first or second

Iniesta, known for his powerful and speedy runs down the wing of the pitch and then a decent ball in and a goal, it's just that easy for Iniesta to bag an assist or goal.

Awesome, but needs to loss a bit of weight

Best player ever without doubt

11 Eden Hazard Eden Hazard Eden Michael Hazard is a Belgian professional footballer who plays for Chelsea and the Belgium national team.

Incredible pace, control and strength when on the ball

Very young, incredible talent.

For someone so young he's pretty good
