ronaldo simply cant be GOAT due to his playing style. He simply has lesser impact overall in the field than lets say maradona, messi, pele. Ronaldo is the best striker right now but not the best player in the world. He is defeated technically but alot of players. He cant hold the ball longer than most players. He is only effective in scoring goals but thats not enough to be put in the "GOAT" status. Simply this,never seen anyone (not random people in the internet but footballer players, coaches, analysts) compare ronaldo to pele, maradona, etc. But you can see tons of people comparing messi to maradona, pele, etc.
