David Beckham v Cristiano Ronaldo – Who did you prefer?


By Ben Davies

With the return of Beckham to Old Trafford my friend and I had an interesting debate regarding which player was the better for us: David Beckham or Cristiano Ronaldo? Two Manchester United greats, but I’d be interested to know who you preferred; I’ve created a poll for you to vote.

The following was our conclusion:

  • Goals: Ronaldo
  • Assists: Beckham
  • Passing/Crossing: Beckham
  • Work ethic: Beckham
  • Dribbling: Ronaldo
  • Match winner: Ronaldo

David Beckham’s record at United

  • 399 appearances, 87 goals
  • Premier League: 1995–96, 1996–97, 1998–99, 1999–00, 2000–01, 2002–03
  • FA Cup: 1996, 1999
  • UEFA Champions League: 1998–99
  • Intercontinental Cup: 1999
  • Community Shield: 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997
  • FA Youth Cup: 1992

Cristiano Ronaldo’s record at United

  • 292 appearances, 118 goals.
  • Premier League: 2006–07, 2007–08, 2008-2009
  • FA Cup: 2003–04
  • League Cup: 2005–06, 2008–09
  • FA Community Shield: 2007
  • UEFA Champions League: 2007–08
  • FIFA Club World Cup: 2008

My decision could have been decided by the toss of a coin but finanly decided on Ronaldo purely for his goals and match winning performances. My friend is in the Beckham camp.
