Cristiano Ronaldo Shown Up By Iniesta And Neymar Thanks To Revealing Dribbling Statistics

Long gone are the days when Cristiano Ronaldo used to scamper down the touchline and whip in exquisite crosses for the likes of Wayne Rooney or Karim Benzema to convert.

His dribbling skills looked nothing short of mesmeric back in the day, but thanks to his transformation into one of the most potent goal scorers on the planet since his move to Real Madrid, his dribbling skills have apparently waned.

According to a study carried out by Twitter user ‘Erdi’, Ronaldo is seriously lagging behind the competition, with the likes of Iniesta and Neymar proving to be most efficient when it comes to having the ball at their feet, 90min reports.

It would seem that Ronaldo just simply will not beat the likes of Iniesta, Neymar or Lionel Messi when it comes to dribbling skills, but it all fairness that isn’t what his game is about these days.

Whereas Messi, Neymar and Suarez are consistently carving out chances for each other thanks to their impressive ball control, Ronaldo is more than happy to have the likes of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric supply him with ammunition.

Whatever the case, being outdone by a Barcelona player is never a fun situation for a Real Madrid man, and the fact that the gulf of class between the two sets of players seems to be so big in this regard will not be any cause for celebration among fans of the Bernabeu club.
