Rooney was being interviewed for the Pardon My Take podcast, when one of the hosts asked “Cristiano Ronaldo versus Messi, who is better?” Rooney did not hesitate: “Messi.”
The host noted that Rooney and Ronaldo used to be teammates at Manchester United, to which Rooney said “they’re the best two players to ever play the game.”
“I just think Messi is, in my eyes, the greatest ever,” Rooney continued.
