Who would have thought that it would be a veterinary association which would provide us the data which gives the answer to the everlasting question in the world of football: Who is more famous between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo?
And if that data is to be believed, the Barcelona maestro trumps the Real Madrid star.
Over 700 pet owners in the Spanish region of Catalonia have named their dog or cat after Lionel Messi. By contrast, only 10 pets were named after Ronaldo. Clear as a day.
FYI Ronaldo fans: Sarcasm!
