Former Leicester City midfielder, Robbie Savage, has picked Manchester United forward, Cristiano Ronaldo as the greatest player ever ahead of Paris Saint-Germain star, Lionel Messi.
Ronaldo and Messi are competing in new leagues this flavour.
The Portugal captain left Juventus for Premier League giants, Man United, in the summertime, patch the Argentine captain left Barcelona for French Ligue 1 giants, PSG.
Ronaldo has won the Ballon d’Or 5 times, patch Messi has 6 Ballon d’Or titles to his proper name.
But Savage feels whether Ronaldo can score 20 goals this flavour for Man United in a to a greater extent competitive league than Messi, the debate will finally be settled.
“I think this is the pivotal flavour where Ronaldo, for me, will be crowned the best player ever,” Savage told William Hill.
“Messi started at PSG, you know, he has had a couplet of injuries and has not got off to the best starts.
“I would say because Ronaldo has done it in Kingdom of Spain, he started off in Portugal, came to the Premier League, Italian Republic, and is at present doing it once again at 36 in the Premier League.
“I would say the 2 greatest players ever whether this flavour dictates, Ronaldo in the Premier League getting 20 goals, and Messi struggling in Ligue 1, I would say Ronaldo is the greatest ever.”
Ronaldo has already scored 5 goals for Man United in all competitions so far this flavour, patch Messi has netted just one goal.
