Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Pele and Diego Maradona ranked according to AI

The debate over who is the greatest soccer player of all time continues, and now artificial intelligence has weighed in by ranking four true legends of the game.



After World Cup glory with Argentina, Lionel Messi wins eighth Ballon d’Or

It’s a football argument that has never been resolved, but now artificial intelligence has given it a good go.

Lionel Messi won a record eighth Ballon d’Or crown this year, 12 months after he inspired Argentina to World Cup victory in Qatar. However, many are in the Cristiano Ronaldo 'GOAT’ camp, the Real Madrid icon who continues to score goals for club and country.




And nostalgics will lean towards the likes of three-time World Cup winner Pele and another Argentine legend in Diego Maradona. All four players can lay claim to lighting up the big stage during their careers, and now technology has done its best to rank them.

4. Diego Maradona

Few can deny that Diego Maradona is classed as one of the four greatest players of all time, although the residents of Naples may question how there are three ahead of him.

He is remembered by AI for his „exceptional dribbling skills, vision and 'hand of God’ goal”. Indeed he was, and fittingly he was one of the greatest individual goals scored at the World Cup following Peter Shilton.
