On the debate of who is the best player between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, David Beckham voted Barcelona’s Argentine superstar.
The pair is reaching the end of their careers, while it’s been almost a decade they have won the individual prize, collecting 11 Ballons d’Ors among them.
“Messi is alone in his class as a player, it’s impossible that there is someone else like him,” Beckham told Argentine news agency Telam. “As a player and there is no other like him”.
“He, like Ronaldo, who doesn’t reach his level, are above the rest”.
“They may have similarities in technique and talent. It is amazing for football to have them both playing at the same time. But Messi is simply the best player in the world.”s
The Englishman had the pleasure of sharing a pitch with Messi in 2013 with the PSG, even though Ronaldo followed Beckham in Manchester United and then Real Madrid they didn’t play together.
