However, Rooney, despite having played with Ronaldo at Manchester United for five years, thinks Lionel Messi is the greatest player to have graced the turf

“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 touches, 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.”
