Di Maria On Messi & Ronaldo Debate
Paris Saint-Germain winger, Angel Di Maria, has played alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, however he has now had say on who is the better player.
The PSG star plays with Messi for the Argentine national side, while he played alongside Ronaldo at Real Madrid, where he was instrumental in the club claiming their 10th Champions League title.
However, the former Manchester United winger was asked who he felt is the better player.
No [laughing]. I've always said that they're the two best players in the world because, in all honesty, they are," Di Maria told Marca.
"That's why they are shortlisted for the Ballon d'Or every year. I can't pick one over the other. They're the best."
Di Maria spoke highly of both players, firstly Messi: "One of the best in the world. Playing with him and being his friend is everything to me. Defending the national colours for Argentina with a player like him... words can't describe it".
While, he was also asked about his time with Ronaldo at Los Blancos.
"We shared many things together. He's a wonderful person, very different from what you see on the pitch. He wants to win everything, score goals. It pains him when he doesn't score and the team don't win".
