Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have been the the two best players in the world since 2007, with the two players pushing football to heights it has never reached before due to their exciting play, unparalleled goal scoring prowess, and longevity.
With their great successes over the last decade or so, both Messi and Ronaldo have set innumerable footballing records and have all but claimed the record books for themselves.
Just as there are a number of records that Messi holds that Ronaldo will most likely never break, the same applies when its the other way around, and this article will look at 5 records Ronaldo holds that will be virtually impossible for Messi to break.
#5 Winning every trophy at 2 different clubs (in the top 5 leagues)
When Cristiano Ronaldo won the Club World Cup during the 2014/15 campaign, he became the first player to win every individual and team trophy at two separate clubs.
Having achieved this once with Manchester United was an incredible feat in itself, but it was an accomplishment that Lionel Messi had also achieved with Barcelona.
Nevertheless, Cristiano would go one better than his arch rival by doing this with Real Madrid as well.
Winning every trophy available at one club is a rare feat that even greats like O Fenômeno Ronaldo and Zidane never achieved in their illustrious careers, but to do it at two clubs is truly outstanding.
This is an achievement that Messi will never equal, in part due to his hesitation to leave Barcelona, but also due to how difficult a feat it actually is. This is one of Ronaldo's greatest achievements.
