Manchester United striker has claimed that Messi is the best player ever.
Surprisingly, Rooney chose Messi over Ronaldo, despite playing with Ronaldo at Old Trafford. Rooney believes that Ronaldo is good, but he is unlucky with timings.
Jonny Evans and Tom Cleverly were asked the same question, but their answers were not the same.
“They’re two different players. But I think Messi’s incredible. I think he’s the best ever, so I’d have to say Messi,” Rooney said in a Google hangout with DHL.
“But Ronaldo has been a bit unlucky because, in any other time, he’d be winning all the awards Messi has. But they’re two of the best players of all-time.”
Ronaldo has had an excellent stat in Spain since he joined them scoring 183 goals from 181 games. On the other hand, Messi has scored 301 goals for his side from 366 games, which is very impressive as well.
“I never played with Ronaldo. They’re two different players, but at the minute I’d probably take Ronaldo,” Said Cleverly.
Evans, on the other hand, voted for Ronaldo: “It’s hard to compare them because we haven’t had the chance to see Messi up close every day, but we’ve had that with Ronaldo.
“I was in the first-team for one season when Ronaldo was here and you sort of take it for granted, the quality he had, but I really don’t think I could choose between them.
“But just for the fact I’ve seen Ronaldo day-in, day-out, and the dedication he has, I’d probably have to say Ronaldo.”
