Top 5 Players for the 2013-2014 Season

Top 5 Football Players

1. Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid & Portugal)
La Decima or the HOLY GRAIL for the Madristas, Portugal qualifying for the World Cup, 31 goals in the Spanish La Liga, 3 in COPA DEL RAY and 17 in UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE – A total of 51. Cristiano Ronaldo has had a successful season on and off the pitch. Scoring at will on the pitch and the deserving Ballon D’Or only complements the player of such stature. Ronaldo is the top player at the moment as he scores just as much as Messi playing as a left mid and Messi is a central forward. Messi cherry picks in the box while Ronaldo is scores from headers and also from outside the 18 yard box. Faster, Stronger, Taller and always a threat to the defenders and goal keepers.Whether you like him or not, it’s hard to begrudge him his success this year as his performances consistently enlighten and entertain fans the world over, and it’s hard to not be taken in by his cocky swagger. Flaunt it if you’ve got it,CR7.

2. Lionel Messi (Barcelona & Argentina)
Messi is an excellent, sensational, unique player. He is astoundingly creative, has amazing individual skill and is able to constantly put his rivals at unease. A natural left footer, he is stunningly versatile, and can play either in the middle or on whichever of the wings required, although it is out on the right that he feels most comfortable. He may not be very tall, but his speed and physique enable him to cope with even the toughest of defenders. He is surprisingly strong, and can hold on to the ball in style, as if it were stuck to his feet. There is simply nobody like him anywhere else in the game. He is also a specialist at all dead ball situations, especially free kicks and penalties.
What else is there to say about Messi that hasn’t already been said before? Had injury not robbed him of the tail end of the year there is no doubt he would be even higher on this list as well as celebrating another Ballon d’Or victory.He really is one of a kind, and not even a lack of full fitness can slow him down as he showed against Getafe in his comeback at the beginning of January where be bagged a brace just minutes after being introduced.
His cold blood and ability to take on responsibilities are other virtues that make Leo Messi simply one of the best
Goals this season : 41 of 44 matches with scoring rate of 0.9+ per game
