He makes it so easy – Rooney believes Messi is better than Ronaldo

first_imgWAYNE Rooney believes Lionel Messi is a cut above the “incredible” Cristiano Ronaldo becausethe Barcelona superstar “will torture you before he kills you.”Rooney and Ronaldo tormented defences during time as team-mates in an outstanding ManchesterUnited side before the Portugal forward joined Real Madrid in 2009.Ronaldo and Messi have won the Ballon d’Or an astonishing 11 times between them, with Luka Modricthe only other player to land the award since 2007.Former England captain Rooney considers Messi, winner of the Ballon d’Or on six occasions, tobe the best on the planet.The Derby County skipper wrote in his Sunday Times column: “Ronaldo wasn’t as focused on goalswhen we started playing together but you could see that all he wanted was to be the best player in theworld.“He practised and practised and began to produce. Cristiano has become an incredible scorerand he and Messi are arguably the best two players the game has seen.“But despite my friendship with Cristiano, I’d go for Messi. It’s for the same reason I loved watching Xaviand [Paul] Scholes: it’s the different things in Messi’s game.“I’ve talked about composure and I can’t remember seeing Messi score when he has hit the ball as hardas he could. He just rolls them in, makes it so easy.“Ronaldo is ruthless in the box, a killer. But Messi will torture you before he kills you. With Messiyou just get the impression he is having more fun.“Those two have completely changed the game in terms of goalscoring numbers and I don’t thinkthey’ll ever be matched.” (Omnisport).last_img read more
