Michael Essien, a former Ghana international, has joined in on the argument about who is the best player in the world when asked to choose between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The discussion about who is the best continues between Manchester United’s Ronaldo and PSG’s Messi, with other footballers weighing in on the two rivals.
The former Chelsea midfielder underlines the difference between the two superstars, who have now won a total of 12 Ballon d’Or awards between them, with Messi winning seven and Ronaldo five.
According to the Chelsea veteran, Cristiano Ronaldo is the most complete footballer in the world, but Messi is the best.
Essien speaking to Copa 90 USA said,“He’s the best (Messi) but when you compare him & Ronaldo, for me Ronaldo is complete player. Messi is talented but he’s only left footed. Ronaldo can jump, shoot, left right.”
