Ronaldo sets the record for top scorer, Rooney still chooses Messi as greater

Even though Ronaldo just set the record for top scorer at Al Nasr, his former teammate Rooney still chooses Messi as greater than CR7.

2 goals against Al Ittihad officially helped Ronaldo win the title of Saudi Pro League 2023/24 top scorer with 35 goals/31 matches, 10 more goals than the person ranked behind Aleksandar Mitrovic. Notably, he entered the tournament’s history as the player who scored the most goals in a season, surpassing the old record of 34 goals held by Abderrazak Hamdallah from the 2018/19 season also in the Al Nassr shirt.

Rooney rates Messi higher than Ronaldo in terms of sophistication and flexibility when playing football

Not only that, CR7 also became the first player in history to win top scorer in 4 different national championships (England, Spain, Italy, Saudi Arabia). Despite becoming the best goalscorer in history, in the eyes of Rooney, his former teammate at MU, Ronaldo is still not equal to Messi.

“Shrek” in his latest interview on SkyBet’s Overlap program frankly commented: “I think Messi, he is the best player ever, a great player. greatest of all time. I know I will receive a lot of criticism for commenting on Messi like that, because for many people it must be Ronaldo.

I understand that some people will choose Messi, some will choose Ronaldo. Both are extraordinary, perhaps the two best football superstars ever. But to me, Messi has a bit more sophistication and flexibility, which is an element I always appreciate in a player. Therefore I choose Messi over Ronaldo”.

Also in this interview, although he considered Messi the greatest and praised Ronaldo, Rooney did not choose these two players as the players he most wanted to play with. That person is French legend Zinedine Zidane. Rooney said the reason:

“I always wanted to play football with Zidane because of his talent. Messi is the best of all time, but playing with Zidane is what I’m interested in. He is very brave, calm, and plays well. 2 feet and good at both scoring and assisting skills.

Recently, the 38-year-old legend was invited to interview for the vacant captain’s position at Plymouth. This club really wants to hold deeper negotiations with Rooney. The home team at the “Theater of Trees” has been looking for a new coach since April, since they fired Ian Foster after only 3 months in charge.
