Manchester United legend, Gary Neville, has named Cristiano Ronaldo as “the best player ever” expressing reasons why he feels his one time colleague is superior to match, Lionel Messi.
Ronaldo scored twice during a fantasy homecoming to Manchester United last weekend and guess what, on his second appearance for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in a 4-1 Premier League triumph over Newcastle.
Garry Neville says the Portuguese International is the best to at any point play the game saying he has a more unrivaled adaptability as a goal scorer than Paris Saint-Germain play-maker, Lionel Messi.
This is what Gary Neville had to say on Sky Sports;
”Look, there’s no club that Messi’s scored an obscene amount of goals. He’s a ridiculous player. Ronaldo’s scored probably 30 or 40% more with his wrong foor and he’s scored more penalties. So it just took to me to a point where he was more complete in terms of the most important part of the game. The thing that tips it over the edge even more is that international record, of the most international goals ever. The fact that he’s won 5 Champions Leagues with teams that aren’t even as good as Messi’s team.
Messi’s won more league titles with that Barcelona team, but I just feel that the international goal record and the Champions Leagues, aligned with the variety of goals that he scores, even though they’re very similar in overall number, takes me to think that he is the greatest player of all time.”
