Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan picks between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

Posted by

Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan has stated that he will prefer to have Lionel Messi in his team than have Cristiano Ronaldo.

According to Gyan who’s Ghana’s all-time scorer with 51 goals in 109 appearances, Messi is gifted and doesn’t need to train to perform while Ronaldo is a product of hard work, something he says he admires about the player.

“For me, I feel Messi is gifted. You need Messi in your team more than Ronaldo. I admire Ronaldo because of his hard work. He has really worked hard to get to where he is. He is someone who can’t go two days without training because he would feel he can’t play anymore but Messi can sit for two weeks and do a little shake-up and will still perform. So there is that difference,” he told Dan Kwaku Yeboah TV.

When quizzed who he will like to have in his team amongst the two, Gyan said:

“I think Messi will be better in my team because he can take five players out easily,” he explained.

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are regarded as the best players in this generation. The duo have won 12 Ballon d’Or awards between themselves in the past 15 years, with Messi winning 7 of them and Ronaldo 5.
