ayne Rooney, a former player for Manchester United, has cited Lionel Messi as the greatest player in history. Messi plays forward for Paris Saint-Germain.
Rooney thinks Messi is superior to late football legends Diego Maradona and Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United.
The former England player asserted that Argentina’s captain Messi is a complete footballer who can dribble, assist, and direct games.
Rooney told The Times, “Everyone has different opinions on Messi and Ronaldo, but I’ve said many times that I think Messi is the best.
I’ve watched a lot of videos of a similar player Diego Maradona, but Messi is better. He has everything, whereas Ronaldo is more of a goal scorer, including the way he controls games, his dribbling, and his assists.
It would be a fantastic story for football if Messi or Ronaldo won the World Cup, he continued. Some of the Argentine players have reportedly stated that they want to win it for Messi. That is absurd and might put even more pressure on them.
