Rooney’s 16-year Premier League career is seemingly at end after the forward recently joined the MLS with DC United. The Manchester United
After the game Rooney was a guest on the award-winning American sports podcast show where he faced questions on his career and all things football. Speaking to the show Rooney was asked who was better Ronaldo or Messi? To which he quickly responded Messi.
Rooney went on to elaborate explaining to Pardon My Take: “I think – they’re both probably the best two players ever to play the game and I just think Messi is, in my eyes the greatest ever”.
The 32-year-old was short for words to explain anything that separates the two beyond his personal feelings. Rooney was obviously a teammate of Ronaldo’s for six years at Manchester United and admitted he remains an admirer of the Portuguese talismans abilities.
Ronaldo, now 33, recently completed a transfer himself, moving to Serie A champions Juventus for around €100m.
Rooney came off the bench to contribute to DC United’s 3-1 win over Vancouver, he’ll be hoping for a first start in the MLS when his side take on Atlanta United on Saturday.
