The new signing of stars of DC United, former Manchester United, Everton, and England star Wayne Rooney, has called Lionel Messi the best of all.
Rooney was being interviewed for the Pardon My Take podcast, when one of the hosts asked “Cristiano Ronaldo against Messi, who is better?” Rooney did not hesitate: “Messi.”
The host noted that Rooney and Ronaldo used to be teammates at Manchester United, to which Rooney said that “they are the best two players who ever played the game.”
“I think Messi is, in my opinion, the best of all time,” Rooney continued.
Rooney’s opinion is perhaps not surprising, given that he had tweeted similar sentiments before comparing the legend of Barcelona with the new Juventus star.
Messi is a joke. For me the best ever.
