They're both monumental cheats tooJust my opinion.
If I had to choose between Maradona at his peak and CR7 I would pick Ronaldo.
Pele, Maradona, Messi, Ronaldo, Best, all Great and all had/have their faults and off-days, but I've watched soccer for close on 60 years and have never seen anyone with the ball skills and finesse that Christiano has.
Anyway, it's one of those BMW vs Merc, Beatles vs Stones things - no consensus will ever be reached.
