According to Jorge Jesus, a former manager of Benfica, other football players will never match the caliber of Ballon d’Or winners Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo because they lack enthusiasm and enjoyment for the game.
According to Jesus, Messi and Ronaldo both love and are passionate about football.
During the Super Liga break, the Portuguese goalkeeper spoke to the media about a variety of subjects.
It’s true that Messi and Ronaldo are no longer the same, but those who are close to the top of the world are still far from either of these two, Jesus said.
There are other players who could succeed, but they’ll never do so because they enjoy other things in addition to football. Messi and Ronaldo consistently prioritize football over their personal interests.
“Football is a passion and a source of pleasure for Ronaldo and Messi.”
In the previous 15 years, Messi and Ronaldo have won 12 Ballon d’Or awards combined.
