    From former Newcastle United star Hatem Ben Arfa to long-time Besiktas favourite Ricardo Quaresma, HITC Sevens takes a look at a number of footballers who could have been frequent Ballon d'Or nominees and rivalled the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo were it not for injury problems, question marks around their attitude, or other external factors.

If Messi and Ronaldo just train hard enough and keep scoring for another 5-10 years they maybe reach the level of Zlatan...

Götze is at PSV now 😮 but if you think about it, it should work out cos Dutch football is technical, he's close to home as he's nextdoor to Germany and he's joined a big club that challenges for titles and aims for champions league football which all footballers aspire to regardless of the level so I hope it works out for them. 🇩🇪⚽

Ronaldinho was better than messi and ronaldo since his dribble was unheard of he was lighting quick, his shooting was magnificent and his passing was was unique . However his preferance for partying hold him back

U could argue that Rooney's control, passing and shooting was as good as CR but u would indeed be argueing. However, Rooney never had the explosive pace to beat a player like CR.

Really, bro? Are you really, genuinely saying that Dinho could have been as good as Messi or Penaldo when Dinho is CLEARLY above both of them combined? You really can't be that dumb / biased. I simply refuse to believe this. Oh, also Dinho had won the WC. What have Penaldo and Messi done at world cups? No comment, really.... Also, where are Kaka and Arshavin? Arhsavin is even a bigger genius than Ben Arfa, he just didn't play well outside of Russia cause Eastern Europeans are usually very capricious

R9 without injuries would've been the closest to equalling Messi in my opinion. Even Messi says R9 is the greatest forward he's ever seen. Where as Neymar, in my opinion, messed up. Messi had Ronaldinho to look up to and learn from, and he did. Neymar had Messi and he didn't. He became arrogant and dissatisfied being known as the third best player in the world. Neymar had everything, all he had to do was to wait, learn and develop but he is a narcissist and needed personal glory and personal recognition.

Rooney: No way R10 + Neymar are the same broken record for brazilian football prodigies. Owen, I concur he could of reached a Zidane level. He was one of the English Golden Boys but injury wrecked that era. My list: Riquelme + Tevez Robinho + Ganso Ibrahimovic Ballotelli Adriano

Absolutely no doubt the levels Ronaldinho reached at barca match the levels of Ronaldo and messi just not the longevity. I was in my early 20s at his prime and he still had me captivated like R9 did when I was a schoolboy. Such a shame his star fizzled out and hope he gets his life sorted out some of the stories are quite concerning!!

Might get cricified for this but id put forward Jack Wilshere. He had everything from vision and skill to a good defensive output without the ball and was amazing in 2011 when arsenal beat barcelona. Even xavi said he was the future of english football and has only not fulfilled his potential becase of injuries.

Ronaldinho won the World Cup as well as major titles in 4 different countries and 2 continents. so in terms of success you could say he could never be seen as having not fulfilled potential, whereas messi and Ronaldo never did and will always personally look back at their careers as flawed; ditto neymar. Its a shame because neymar found the balls to find his own path. Another shame is having not won the covid ECL, PSG definitely played well enough to have won. Only a World Cup can save neymar legacy. Ronaldinho will forever be the greatest player in world football. Ever. Thierry Henry = no.2, having won all necessary major titles
