Lionel Andres "Leo" Messi has recently surpassed 500 million followers, making him the second most followed player globally after Cristiano Ronaldo, who holds the top spot.

Messi serves as the captain for both Major League Soccer Club Inter Miami and the Argentina national team.

Notably, Messi holds 41 Guinness World Records, while Cristiano Ronaldo has 40.

Despite Messi's extraordinary success and numerous records, there is an ongoing debate among fans about who truly deserves the title of the greatest footballer of all time.

Some argue that Cristiano Ronaldo, often referred to as "CR7," is the real "G.O.A.T." Here are some comments expressing different viewpoints:

  • @am_claude_: Christiano fans, we chilling at 600m.
  • @msym.ple_sy: Still got 122m to get to the real 🐐.

Despite the ongoing comparison between Messi and Ronaldo fans, both players have individually proven that they are the best in their craft. Instead of seeing it as a competition, they are doing what they love.

Cristiano Ronaldo leads with 622 million followers on Instagram globally. Lionel Messi, aside from his illustrious career, is a proud father of three – Thiago, Mateo, and Ciro. Messi and Antonella Roccuzzo tied the knot in 2017, with their love story spanning decades since childhood.
