Talking to Manchester United‘s club media, Mason Greenwood was asked to pick the better player between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“For me, it’s always got to be Messi. For me, he’s just on another planet,” the youngster said.
“Ronaldo is obviously amazing, a physical, great athletic footballer. But to do what Messi does at his size, what he’s done for Barcelona and winning that trophy for Argentina, he is just on another level.”
Meanwhile, Mason Greenwood’s comments might rub some Manchester United fans the wrong way because of Ronaldo’s history at the club.
However, it makes sense for Greenwood to be idolizing Messi since he is also a left-footed forward who prefers playing on the right-wing.
Cristiano Ronaldo spent six years at Manchester United before famously moving to Real Madrid in 2009 where he continued his excellence.
