Messi or Ronaldo? Rooney has at last acknowledged the all-time great in world football.

Although he played with Cristiano Ronaldo during his time at MU, Wayne Rooney admitted that Messi was 1 point better than his teammate.

The GOAT (Greatest of All Time – Greatest of All Time) debate between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi has lasted for more than a decade. It created a wave of controversy among the football fan community. They always want to find an answer and what better quality than when it comes from the main stars of the football industry.

When asked about the GOAT rivalry between Ronaldo and Messi, MU legend Rooney told The Overlap: “I think Messi is the best of all time. I get criticized a lot for this name. I understand that some choose Messi, others choose Ronaldo. They are both incredible, they are probably the two best players to ever play football. However, for me Messi is a little more refined, which is what I like in a player, and that is also the reason why I made that decision.”

Wayne Rooney appears to have overlooked the teammate who worked closely with him at Manchester United.

Red Devils legend Rooney, the club’s top scorer, spent 5 years working with Ronaldo at Old Trafford. Both Rooney and Ronaldo worked together to create the famous Red Devils attack that conquered everything from the Premier League to the Champions League.

Rooney played with and against many great players during his illustrious career. However, Rooney still wants to one day sit in the same dressing room with French player Zinedine Zidane.

The former England captain added: “I wish I could play with Zinedine Zidane, how good he is. Messi is the best player of all time but playing with Zidane is incredible. “He is calm, calm, plays with both feet, scores goals and assists.”

While Messi and Ronaldo are still developing strongly at almost 40 years old, Rooney decided to retire and dedicate himself to training. After a forgettable time at Birmingham in the 2023-24 season, Rooney found a new job when he took over as head coach of Championship team Plymouth.
