Messi–Ronaldo rivalry: Sir Alex Ferguson Gives verdict.
The Messi–Ronaldo rivalry is a football rivalry between fans of Argentinian forward Lionel Messi and Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo and supposedly between the athletes themselves.
Ferguson also believes that Ronaldo is the better overall player.
Back in 2015, Fergie answered the Messi vs Ronaldo debate with an answer that many Man Utd fans entirely agreed with.
“People say who is the best player in the world? And plenty of people quite rightly say Messi – you can’t dispute that opinion,” Ferguson said to snooker legend John Parrott.
“But Ronaldo could play for Millwall, Queens Park Rangers, Doncaster Rovers… anyone, and score a hat-trick in a game.
“I’m not sure Messi could do it.
“Ronaldo’s got two feet, he’s quick, great in the air, he’s brave – Messi’s brave, of course.
“I think Messi’s a Barcelona player.”
