Chelsea boss, Frank Lampard has revealed who, to him, is a better player between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
According to Lampard, Messi is better, but Ronaldo is good.
Messi and Ronaldo have long been considered two of the greatest players in the world, with the former winning six and latter five Ballon d’Or awards.
Both players are now coming to the end of their careers, but they both still play a pivotal part in Barcelona and Juventus’ success.
And Chelsea manager Lampard had positive things to say about both stars.
When asked the age-old question during a Q&A session for Hyundai, Lampard said:
“I’m gonna go Messi on this on pure, natural talent but what Ronaldo has done has been absolutely incredible.”
Lampard also went on to reveal the names of the two toughest players he ever came up against.
“The two that I name when I say against is Xavi and [Andres] Iniesta at Barcelona,” he added. “They were great players, they were kind of not the biggest and quite slight.
“It just shows it doesn’t matter, because sometimes people think you have to be huge to be a footballer player. You don’t.”
Finally, Lampard was asked to name players for a dream team of former opponents.
“It’s [Manuel] Neuer, Rio [Ferdinand], Steven Gerrard, [Zinedine] Zidane, Ronaldinho, Messi and Ronaldo,” the Chelsea boss said.
