Wayne Rooney: "Lionel Messi Is The Best Player Ever" by Sportdab(m): 6:09pm On Oct 09, 2018
Former Manchester United Striker Wayne Rooney has admitted that Barcelona Star Lionel Messi is the best player of the all time.

Messi and Ronaldo are widely known as the two greatest players in football.

And the pair have dominated the Ballon d'or for over a decade, both winning five each.

This year, Messi and Ronaldo have been shortlisted for the 2018 Ballon D'or having performed last season.

Ronaldo helped Real Madrid win a third successive Champions League title while Messi performed as Barcelona won the La Liga and Copa Del Rey.

Rooney has felt the influence of Messi, with Barcelona beating Manchester United in the 2009 and 2011 Champions League finals, with Messi scoring in each.

And the former England Striker believes Lionel Messi is the best player ever to step foot on a football pitch.

“In both games (Champions League finals) if we had been against any other team but Barcelona you would have fancied us to win,” Rooney said.

“In my eyes they are the best team ever and Messi is the best player ever.

“What he gets to do is incredible. Messi has just got a bit of everything.

“Ronaldo has gone from a winger to a striker and a goalscorer.

“Rather than taking players on all the time, he has gone more one or two touch, getting in the box and scoring goals.

“Messi a bit of everything - you see him scoring goals from playing probably a deep midfield role at times, and where I’m probably still walking on the pitch he’s scoring.

“So he is probably the best.”

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi will not face off in La Liga this year after Ronaldo's move to Juventus in the summer.

However, Ronaldo will return to Manchester United in the Champions League group stage.

Everyone knows it naaa... He's in a competition with himself as he's no longer in d same league with any player... Midfielder and Striker and is exceptional at both at d same time
tegrianonigltd:


Very wrong, someone that can’t influence World Cup or copa America, in Barcelona he had the best midfielders who both won 2 European cup and world cup, they never praise ini and xavi.

So 2 Copa finals and a world cup final where he won d best player awards in each of dem is not influence abi? So Ronaldo did it all himself at Madrid or United abi?

Umueme:
...i did not want to comment but took a second look at the name and.....
Excuse me,but what does an international flop like Rooney know about football?

For Messi i dont have much to say except "he should try going to another club like Ronaldo did and lets see how he copes there..."

But what do i know....
#MyOpinion

Dis it comment shows U know Little or nothing about football.. So Becos Rooney gave his opinion he's now an international flop? Man United's highest goal scorer, England and Everton Legend.. Rooney is a bigger legend dan Ronaldo is at United.. Messi has scored 22 goals against d biggest teams from England so is it d smaller clubs he won't score against? Messi is happy where he is and d club is making sure he stays happy so why must he leave to impress U? See keyboard warrior asking what a football legend knows about football

Those still arguing this fact are only blinded by love they have for CR7. If u are a footballer and understand the concept of the game, you will realise that it takes the best to dominate from the midfield and still score as much goals as Messi does. #MessiissaGenius

The spirit of the air, of the sea, of the earth.. The 16 or 24 elders in heaven, the power holding the four square of the world, the living soul, the deads all know this. No need telling us again. Messi is the god of football.

I commend Ronaldo for trying everything to challenge him.. Messi is a beast. He is the demon that knows whats going on in the four corner of the stadium. He doesn't have to raise his head to know position of players/keepers also the measurement of post.

It's just a shame gods can't be everything.. Ask Poisedon, Achilles if you think i'm lying.
